All of the infrastructure works at Dubai Maritime City are entering the final stage. As of now, 80 per cent of the Dh140 million road and support networks for the hub's first phase is done.
The developer, DP World, said in a statement: "All major and minor components that will facilitate the delivery of world-class services at DMC are expected to be completed on time. The site is set to become a major hub... cementing Dubai's leading position as a leading global maritime centre."
DP World said progress was made despite the "unprecedented challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic". In over 11 months, construction work in Phase 1 has seen 4,830 man-days and 857,194 safe man-hours being recorded.
Mohammed Al Muallem, CEO and Managing Director, DP World, UAE Region said, "Following the completion of the infrastructure of Phase 1, we will set the ball rolling for the development of other works of this landmark project that is set to transform the maritime sector in the country."
