ABU DHABI // The Onwani, or My Address, scheme is almost finished in Abu Dhabi city, but it will take until the end of next year to implement it across the emirate.
To date, 99 per cent of building address number signs have been installed and 97 per cent of street name signs built.
“In the areas where all signs are installed, visitors and residents of these areas will simply have to provide the street name and building number to find their address,” said Dr Abdullah Ghareeb, executive director at the Department of Municipal Affairs.
The municipality says the project has progressed at a rapid pace and upon completion will consist of about 66,000 unique building numbers, 6,600 street names and 17,000 new street name signs within Abu Dhabi City Municipality jurisdictions.
All-new overhead street name signs have been installed on the main intersections on Abu Dhabi island, together with route numbers.
