Build­ing the UAE’S high­est road

Construction BusinessNews Middle East - - News -

Jebel Jais is part of the Ha­jar Moun­tain Range in Ras Al Khaimah. It is the high­est peak in the UAE. And for cen­turies un­reach­able by most. For 8 years, a fleet of Volvo FMX Trucks car­ried a to­tal of more than 5.5 mil­lion cu­bic me­ters around the clock build­ing a 36 km road that goes up more than 1910 me­ters. The rugged ter­rain, steep slopes and loose rock were not a chal­lenge for Volvo FMX, which is built tough for such con­di­tions. That is why more than 30 of our Volvo FMX trucks com­pleted this am­bi­tious road project with­out any ma­jor break­down.
