Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) has awarded a contract for Phase 4 and 5 of the Dubai Water Canal Project.

2 According to the contract, which amounts to Dh703 million, works in both phases are set for completion by the end of September this year.

Highlighting the latest phases of the project, Mattar Al Tayer, Chairman of RTA said: “Phase 4 of the Dubai Water Canal project, which costs about Dh307 million, is part of infrastructural works required to serve property development areas on both sides of the Canal, including roads & utility lines.

“The Canal stretches 3.2 km from the Business Bay Canal up to the Arabian Gulf via the Sheikh Zayed Road (SZR), Al Wasl Road and Jumeirah Road.

“Projects to be constructed on the Water Front will be served by modern water transport means, and result in improved quality of water in the Dubai Creek.

“Phase 5 of the Dubai Water Canal project, which costs about Dh396 million would link the Business Bay Canal with the Dubai Water Canal terminating at the Arabian Gulf. Works include building quay walls of precast concrete slabs all along the stretch of the Canal, and completing & diverting utility lines & key services to give way for completing the construction works of the Canal as well as the removal of impacted services.

“Works also include the treatment of hyper-saline water of the Business Bay Lakes, removing sand barriers in the course of the Canal, and constructing three marine transport stations on both sides of the Canal,” explained Al Tayer. More info
