Abu Dhabi has big plans
If we thought the development in Dubai was mind boggling, take a look at what Abu Dhabi has planned scroll down to the animated presentation. The plan, Abu Dhabi 2030, is to grow the city to a population of 3 million by 2030. To quote the government website, this urban structure plan "has been created to deliver upon the vision of His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, President of the UAE and Ruler of Abu Dhabi, for the continued fulfillment of the grand design envisaged by the late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan and the ongoing evolution of Abu Dhabi as a global capital city." (my emphasis)
Watch out Dubai, Abu Dhabi's coming up behind you and they're in the overtaking lane.....
