The Dubai Canal project construction has passed the halfway mark: and when it’s finished we’ll have a new-and-improved Jumeirah Beach Park, a shopping mall with a park on top of it, a seven kilometre running track and apartments that look over Safa Park.
His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai, inspected the Dubai Canal progress this weekend, and the infrastructure for the project is 61 per cent complete.
One of the bridges over Sheikh Zayed Road is complete and open because more lanes are now open to lead onto the bridge). Traffic was heavier than usual Abu Dhabi-bound this morning partly due to diversions there, but it appears this will be temporary too. Also, the Al Wasl Road and Jumeirah Beach Road bridges are almost complete.
