Mohammed bin Rashid endorses Extension of Business Bay Canal Project, costing Dh1.5b

Directives issued to complete the project in 2 years







Roads and Transport Authority – Mohammed Al Munji:
HH Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, has endorsed the Extension of the Business Bay Canal Project, including modifications of roads & bridges required for extending the water canal from Sheikh Zayed Road up to the Arabian Gulf. HH also directed to have the project completed in two years.

H.E. Mattar Al Tayer, Chairman of the Board and Executive Director of the Roads & Transport Authority (RTA), said: “The Extension of the Business Bay Canal is one of the key strategic projects undertaken by the RTA and encompasses the extension of the water canal from the Business Bay up to the Arabian Gulf in a waterway stretching 2.8 km in length and width ranging from 80 to 100 meters. The Canal crosses Sheikh Zayed Road (before Al Safa Interchange) and passes across the Safa Park, Al Wasl Road, and Jumeirah 2 to terminate at the Arabian Gulf.

“RTA will use the Soil-Cement method to construct the banks of the Canal; an innovative engineering solution that adds aesthetic appearance to the Canal and the surroundings. This Canal will ensure the replenishment of water supplies in the entire Business Bay Canal automatically without any need for pumps.

“The estimated cost of the Project is 1.5 billion dirham and due to the enormity of the project scale, and the need to expedite construction works, the project has been divided into three contracts. The first covers drilling & landscaping works as well as the construction of marine transit stations. The other two contracts relate to road & bridge projects, and the project is set for completion early 2015,” stated Al Tayer.

“The Project warrants the construction of bridges across the water canal rising 8.5 meters at the key intersecting roads i.e. Sheikh Zayed Road (6 lanes in each direction), in addition to Al Wasl Road Road and Jumeirah Road (3 lanes in each direction in both roads). These bridges will allow free marine navigation in the Canal 24 hours a day, and marine transit stations will be constructed along the water canal to ease the mobility of the public and encourage the use of mass & tourist marine transit system.

Dubai Creek canal set to cross Shaikh Zayed Road

Landscape-transforming project will pave way for a host of business and tourism avenues

By Ashfaq Ahmed, Deputy UAE Editor
Published: 21:30 October 6, 2012

Dubai: Dubai will spend Dh1.5 billion to extend the Business Bay canal by 12.8 kilometres, from the section of Shaikh Zayed Road flanking the Safa Park Interchange to the Arabian Gulf.

His Highness Shaikh Mohammad Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, has endorsed the extension of the Business Bay Canal Project, including required modifications to roads and bridges.

Shaikh Mohammad has also directed the Dubai Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) to complete the project within two years.

The project will add a fresh urban and tourist landmark to the Dubai’s landscape and is expected to boost Dubai’s bid to host the World Expo 2020.

The extended Business Bay Canal will cross Shaikh Zayed Road before Al Safa Interchange and cut across Safa Park, Al Wasl Road, and Jumeirah 2, terminating in the Arabian Gulf

The canal will usher in a host of new business and investment opportunities including the possibility of utilising it to harbour floating hotels, or constructing hotels and restaurants on either side, or launching integrated tourist and recreational facilities in Al Safa Park, besides constructing canal view houses.



Mattar Al Tayer, chairman of the board and executive director of the RTA, said: “The extension of the Business Bay canal is one of the key strategic projects undertaken by the RTA.”

The width of the extended canal will be between 80 to 100 metres. Major diversions on Shaikh Zayed Road, Al Wasl Road and Jumeirah Road will be in place as the work starts.

The project will see an 800-metre-long bridge being built on Shaikh Zayed Road with six lanes in each direction. The bridge will be 8.5-metres high to ensure smooth sailing for marine transport.

A six-lane bridge with three lanes in each direction will also be built on Al Wasl Road next to Safa Park and another six-lane bridge with three lanes in both directions will be built on Jumeirah Road.

The Dubai Creek Canal extension project is also part of Dubai’s ambitious plan to develop marine transport as the waterway will be used by private boats, water taxis and ferries.

Some 10 kilometres out of the total 12.8 kilometres envisaged under the creek canal extension work has already been completed under the Business Bay development project.

Dubai Creek, which begins at the point of the Arabian Gulf near Al Shindagha in Bur Dubai, currently spans 14 kilometres and culminates at Ras Al Khor Wildlife Sanctuary.

Once completed, the final length of the creek will be around 26.8 kilometres, with Bur Dubai becoming an island ringed by the Dubai Creek.

The creek has been the lifeline of Dubai since it was built along the creek.

The RTA plans to give shape to the canal’s banks employing the soil-cement method, an innovative engineering solution that will add to the aesthetics of the canal and its surroundings.

The creek extension will ensure the replenishment of water in the entire Business Bay Canal automatically without the need for pumps.

Due to the scale of the project and the need to expedite construction, the project has been divided into three contracts.

“The first covers drilling and landscaping works as well as the construction of marine transit stations. The other two contracts relate to road and bridge projects, and the project is set for completion early 2015,” Al Tayer said.

i think more likely, the SZR bridge will consist of two separated bridges close to each other, one for both directions, they will transfer traffic to parallel roads and one direction of the SZR, while building one bridge, than transfer the part of the traffic to the first bridge and than build the second bridge... for metro, i don't think, it will be necessary to cut it ofF... maybe they will remove some of the pillars and strenghten the remaining, including the rail, but that is just my guess, in Abu Dhabi they are doing it just like this, when building flyover to khalifa port - close half of the road and build half of the bridge, than close the other part and open the next and build the remaining half of the bridge, THEY JUST CANT SIMULTANEOUSLY CUT THE WHOLE SZR

They just got SZR traffic free (more or less) and now about to dig it up again..... Maybe just a ploy for 2020 but then again another ambitious and bold project. They said the man made palm couldn't be built but look!
At least it shows business bay is a definite winner and the new centre of Dubai
