Meraas will work closely with various Dubai government entities, in particular with RTA, to deliver a futuristic infrastructure that connects ‘Dubai Harbour’ to the surrounding areas and provides multi-mode transport systems within the development.
Visitors can access ‘Dubai Harbour’ either from King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud Street, a bridge that connects them directly from Sheikh Zayed Road or the monorail system that will link to the metro from both Palm Jumeirah and Bluewaters Island. A pedestrian bridge with a jogging and cycling track will also connect ‘Dubai Harbour’ to Palm Jumeirah.
The project will also feature water stations in various areas of the destination. Key ones to be built under the shopping mall and select hotels will offer direct access to the buildings. The water stations will play a major role in facilitating water transportation in the area. The project will also have three helipads.
Meraas will work closely with the Dubai Civil Aviation Authority and Skydive Dubai to conduct feasibility studies to assess the possibility of using the landing site at Skydive to accommodate private jets.
Additionally, ‘Dubai Harbour’ will offer a high quality internal transport network and a connected road grid and monorail system that can transport passengers between different areas of the destination such as the cruise terminal, the hotels, the yacht club, the shopping mall, Skydive Dubai and the ‘Dubai Lighthouse’. The project’s roads will be designed to enable the destination to host Formula races. A pedestrian bridge will also be constructed linking the yacht club area to the shopping mall and Skydive. Jogging and cycling tracks will be spread across the project. More info
