Sheikh Mohammed Launches “Dubai Water Canal”

(Dubai) – His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, has launched the “Dubai Water Canal” project extending in the heart of Dubai with three kilometres in length and 80-120 meters in width.
The Canal stretches from the Business Bay district and crosses the Sheikh Zayed Road (between Safa and 1st Interchanges) and passes across the Safa Park, Al Wasl Road, Jumeirah 2, and Jumeirah Road to terminate at the Arabian Gulf. The construction of the infrastructure (construction of bridges and drilling of the canal course) amounts to about two billion dirham, and all construction works are set to be completed by 2017.
The Dubai Water Canal will add about six kilometres to the Dubai water front and the project provides an area spanning more than 80 thousand square meters designated as public realms containing vital facilities as well as convenient and excellent means to meet the needs of all community segments.
The Project encompasses new shopping and entertainment centres linked through a uniquely designed bridge and the project will add more than 450 new restaurants along with a wide array of luxurious marinas for yachts, and 4 world-class hotels. At the entrance of the Project from Sheikh Zayed Road, an iconic Trade Centre will be constructed comprising 4 levels, including one underground level and three elevated levels linking the Business Bay with the project zone in a total area of more than 50 thousand square metres.
The development of the waterfront will allow for the construction of deluxe residences and private marinas for boats along with pedestrian pathways, cycling tracks, together with fine business outlets, hotels and deluxe restaurants. The project will boost the position of the Jumeirah area as a premier and distinctive destination in Dubai. The project is expected to attract 20 to 22 million visitors per annum.
