Nakheel awards AED 447 million contract for 12-lane Deira Islands bridge
A 12-lane bridge is taking shape in Dubai, providing a vital link to the upcoming waterfront city, Deira Islands.
Developer Nakheel has awarded a AED 447 million contract for the construction of the 600 metre flyover, which starts at Al Khaleej Road.
Work on the project is scheduled for completion in the second quarter of 2020.
The bridge will be the main access point to Deira Islands where several new developments are under construction.
Nakheel has already invested more than AED 8.5 billion in the project’s infrastructure and construction, with more on the way.
The 15.3 sq km Deira Islands is billed as a world-class hub for tourism, leisure, retail and entertainment.
It will add 40km of new coastline to Dubai, house 250,000 residents and create 80,000 new jobs.
