Canal project flowing smoothly
31 March, 2015
The Dubai Water Canal project is progressing on schedule, an official said at a government services expo where a huge model of the canal is on show. Scheduled for completion in mid-2016, the canal will run 3.2km from Business Bay and empty into the sea in Jumeirah. The AED2 billion project will cut across Sheikh Zayed Road, Al Safa Park and Al Wasl and Jumeirah roads. It will be lined by hotels, shops and restaurants that are expected to draw scores of residents and tourists. The large canal model, turning heads at the Dubai Government Achievements Exhibition (DGAE) until Wednesday, offers a rare view of the entire project in 3D.
