The Abu Dhabi Louvre is located in the cultural quarter of Saadiyat Island in Abu Dhabi. The development will consist of permanent and temporary exhibition areas, children’s museum, auditorium, educational workshops, research center and events/reception areas.
Due to the unique characteristics of this development, the traffic and parking requirements for Louver is unconventional and must cater for the special functionality of the development. The Louvre Abu Dhabi is located in an area served by a proposed Light Rapid Transit route and within walking distance of municipal parking facilities.
The daily visitors to the Louver are estimated at around 3,000 with a good portion of them using the planned public transport while the rest using private cars, taxis, walk and shuttles. There is no on-site visitor parking, hence the private vehicles will use the off-site municipal parking facilities nearby and access the development via transit. Visitors will also arrive by foot from surrounding cultural attractions and closely located hotels, along the Corniche.
Crown Consult undertook the Traffic Impact Study of the development and obtained its approval in accordance with the Abu Dhabi Department of Transport’s standards and guidelines.
