Dubai Industrial City, one of the largest industrial hubs in region, has announced the completion of major construction and infrastructure projects to help its community keep pace with manufacturing and logistics demand in the UAE.
Two highway extensions to Emirates Road have been completed, giving heavy-tow trucks direct access to the major causeway linking Abu Dhabi with the Northern Emirates, Oman and Saudi Arabia. By improving the community’s 127-kilometre-long road network, a major part of its enabling infrastructure, the upgrades enhance mobility for more than 750 business partners.
Dubai Industrial City has also inaugurated a 14,000-bed worker accommodation village, which brings the total number of available beds in the community to more than 56,000. The modern, well-equipped, low-rise buildings comprise living quarters, dining areas, leisure facilities and other amenities.
More than AED 410 million has been invested to develop the two projects, both of which have been completed and are now operational.
