New Projects in Abu Dhabi and Dubai worth 6.6 billion dirhams

On October 31st 2020 at 1:56pm, His Highness Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum (Vice President, Prime Minister of the UAE, and Ruler of Dubai) announced on Twitter that he and his team are working on 29 new projects.

The first base of the project is to be completed in 2023  and the whole project being ready by 2024.

The crown prince states his objective of developing unique environmental projects is to ensure a healthier lifestyle for the community whilst attracting visitors and tourists. 

The Hudayriat island will get new leisure activities and attractions for both children and adults like obstacle parks, cycling tracks, BMX tracks, climbing wall, high ropes course, and a zip line. After years of making this new 3000 hectare waterfront community has been opened considering it a “gift” for the people in Abu Dhabi.

We have adopted global best practices and implemented innovative projects to preserve our environment and protect the health and safety of people in the UAE” saids Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum.
