Building the UAE ’s highest road

Jebel Jais is part of the Hajar mountain range in Ras Al Khaimah. It is the highest peak in the in the UAE and for centuries unreachable by most.Building the road which will run up right to the 1,910 meter summit was almost impossible without FAMCO’s expertise and support who supplied a fleet of 50 VOLVO Construction Equipment and 33 VOLVO Trucks to carry more than 5.5 million cubic meters around the clock building the 36km mountain road. The rugged terrain, steep slopes and loose rocks were not a challenger of FAMCO’s capabilities or VOLVO’s engineering, this ensured that there were no major breakdowns during the entire project duration.
