Dubai Maritime City has launched a Dh140 million ($38.1 million) infrastructure development project as part of the emirate’s efforts to promote itself as a global maritime hub.
The effort aims to improve the area’s roadways and infrastructure while also enhancing DMC’s image as a multipurpose maritime hub, according to the Dubai Media Office. DMC, DP World’s maritime center, features a wide scope of industrial and commercial facilities.
“The timely launch of the infrastructure project is part of our commitment to enhance the growth of the UAE’s maritime sector. The new upgrades will certainly bring about a radical change,” said Sultan Ahmed bin Sulayem, DP World’s global chairman and CEO.
Deep sewerage, storm water, fire, irrigation, potable water, telecommunications, and road networks are all part of the new project. It will link DMC to the Mina Rashid neighborhood.
DMC, which spans 249 acres, is located between Port Rashid and Dubai’s Drydocks World. Its goal is to establish Dubai into a regional and global maritime center.
