The Abu Dhabi Government is aiming to curb pollution levels in the city – by rolling out new illuminated kerbstones.

The Abu Dhabi City Municipality (ADM) is replacing traditional concrete pavements with illuminated versions as part of a trial project in Al Mina.

The new pavements are heat resistant and insulated against water and feature invisible lighting cables covered by cement.

The new street furniture is also light in weight, reducing the need for the use of heavy, costly and dangerous machinery to transport and fix them and lowering the chances of accidents at sites.

They are also flexible in construction as they can be installed in various ways, depending on the location and traffic congestion.

The project was led by the Capital of Construction for General Contracting Company at its own expense as part of the Year of Giving initiative.
