Systems cover the equivalent of 15 square kilometres with AED 588 million invested
Dubai Industrial City has announced the completion of infrastructural works associated with its power, water, sewage, irrigation and telecom systems over an area equivalent to 15 square kilometers (161 million square feet) across the city.
Divided into six cluster, the second largest non-real estate project in Dubai invested a total of AED 588 million over four years to meet operational needs to create a comprehensive industrial base in Dubai
“The steady progress of infrastructure work underscores our continued commitment to creating a robust industrial environment for our business partners,” said managing director of Dubai Industrial City, Abdullah Belhoul.
“It is also a testimony to the accelerating momentum we are witnessing among the industrial entities that wish to base their manufacturing and logistical activities at the destination. We expect the present project, which is part of a larger one covering the City, to cope with the future demand and growth of the destination,” Belhoul added.
Covering an area of 55 square kilometers (560 million square feet), Dubai Industrial City is located on Emirates Road near the new Al Maktoum International Airport and offers a strategic advantage due to its proximity to major highways and the Jebel Ali Port.
Completed works include more than 40Km of new roads, connecting each cluster internally; 139Km of water lines; 189Km of telecom ducts; 91Km of storm and drainage lines; 80Km of sewerage; and 53Km of irrigation lines.
Construction of a direct access roundabout on Emirates Road near the entrance of the City has also now begun, in association with the Dubai Road and Transport Authority (RTA).
