The AED73.4 billion ($20 billion) Jumeirah Central, an urban mixed-use city district in Dubai, will have a 1.5-kilometre underground tunnel and will be the first development to convert organic waste into biogas, a top Dubai Holding executive told Arabian Business.

“We will have a 1. 5 kilometre tunnel underneath the more dense part of our project and it will connect he three utilities complexes, but also work as a service tunnel,” said Morgan Parker, Chief Operating Officer, Jumeirah Central.

The tunnel will allow commercial deliveries to be routed to highest density users such as retail malls and hotels.

“It will reduce air and noise pollution, and save on the wear and tear of the public roads due to the truck deliveries.” More info
