Dubai Water Canal, Jewel of the Creek and other infrastructure projects a boon for contractors
20 August, 2016
The Dubai Road and Transport Authority’s (RTA) unveiling of new designs for the Water Canal stops and a series of other transport projects this month is another sign that the local market continues to offer opportunities despite difficulties elsewhere in the region, according to contractors. A series of infrastructure projects being undertaken by the RTA include the new Shindagha Crossing, new dock areas for the Dubai Water Canal, new interchanges for the Jewel of the Creek project and the extension of Burj Khalifa metro station to boost capacity. The projects also feature transport plans for the city, including a traffic management plan that will include the installation of 36 extra bridges to boost traffic flows.
