Master developer Nakheel has awarded a contract worth AED447mn for the construction of a 12-lane bridge connecting the Dubai mainland with Deira Islands.

The 600m bridge, being constructed by Wade Adams Contracting, under the supervision of the RTA, will provide the main access route to the new, 15.3sqkm waterfront city. Work began in May and is scheduled for completion in Q2 2020.

Nakheel chairman Ali Rashid Lootah said: “We thank the RTA for its ongoing assistance and co-operation for our transport links at Deira Islands, where we have now invested more than AED8.5 billion in infrastructure and construction contracts, with more on the way.”

The bridge starts at Al Khaleej Road on the mainland and leads to Deira Islands A, where several new Nakheel developments, including Deira Islands Night Souk, Deira Mall and RIU and Centara resorts are currently under construction.

Deira Islands will be a hub for tourism, leisure, retail and entertainment, and a key contributor to the Government of Dubai’s tourism vision. The project will add 40km of new coastline to Dubai, house 250,000 residents and create 80,000 new jobs.
