Abu Dhabi developers told to clean up construction sites

Abu
Dhabi developers will have to clean the tyres of their trucks before leaving
construction sites and keep a lid on litter under new rules laid out by the
city’s municipality.

In
a bid to keep the capital tidy, Abu Dhabi’s urban planning division has ordered
developers to ensure roads bordering construction sites stay clean.

The
rules oblige developers to “maintain the cleanliness of the asphalt roads by
building paved entry routes… [for the] entry and exit of vehicles at
construction sites,” Salah Awad Al Sarraj, acting executive director of Abu
Dhabi’s urban planning division, said in a statement. “And [to] avoid arousing
dust that pollutes the environment and harms the public health."

Companies
must now take measures to ensure that no concrete objects fall on roads from
vehicles shuttling to and from construction sites; wash their vehicles,
machinery and concrete plants and ensure that the discharge process of waste
containers is carried out regularly.

Developers
must also transport and remove all waste from the streets and ensure that the
public hygiene in the community is maintained, the urban planning division
said.
