Keeping Abu Dhabi's Pavement Clean
Abu Dhabi, in the United Arab Emirates, has an image of being extremely clean, a reputation that includes its roadway system. This is somewhat surprising, given that most countries and their cities in that part of the world have massive sweeping difficulties since they are sited on sand and are surrounded by sand. Add to that scorching temperatures, high winds and the dust they create, and the result is all the right ingredients to make a sweeping program into a difficult task.
Phileas Fogg, our globe-trotting WorldSweeper.com correspondent, interviews Tony Moran and Dan Ponder from Golder Associates, a global engineering consulting company. These two gentlemen, who are contract managers to the Abu Dhabi Centre of Waste Management, tell how they accomplish the task. Read the story.
