Dubai Canal update: Stonework laid, perimetres in sight

While thousands of vehicles pass the roads surrounding Safa Park on a daily basis, in the centre of this area work is ongoing to create the Dubai Canal.

The surface has now come one step closer to being a waterway.

With stonework forming the perimetres of this Canal, another leap in the transformation was made.

The part of Dubai Canal that runs through Safa Park is at its most mature stage of completion.

This part is easiest to realise, as it does not involve the diversion of traffic or evacuation of residents, officials on the site explained earlier to Emirates 24|7.

A long slope stretching from Al Wasl Road to the borders of Sheikh Zayed Road sketches where the Canal will run its course.

The area has been dug up and fenced off with concrete stones forming what looks to be a wall of the waterway.
 
Bridges and flyovers

In the meantime, traffic solutions that will be in place once the creek extension is drawn are well under way.

Dubai Canal will be extended from Business Bay across Sheikh Zayed Road, through Safa Park and across the two main arteries in Jumeirah to reach the Arabian Gulf.
 
In order to realise this, all roads will be elevated through the construction of bridges, which is part 1 and 2 of the project.


 
The bridge on Sheikh Zayed Road in the direction of Sharjah is currently taking shape, as is the bridge on Al Wasl Road.
 
On the latter road, a flyover will be constructed to connect to Meydan Road, passing over Hadiqa Street.

With the framework erected the new infrastructure is starting to take shape.
