Imre, I noticed there was a security checkpoint before the tunnel. You did not seem to get any closer than that point. Did they prevent you from going further? And if so, why are only certain people allowed through?

It looks awesome. Dubai is looking better and better for each day that passes. One would wish that the villas would have more space, but then again they already have a beach right outside the house, one can always come up with more wishes.

Once more people move in and personalize their plots it will be even better.

A forumer who lives in the Palm, has said that the site is boarded, soil testing is going on and even a few machineries have arrived on site.

Stop trolling.

We already understood your position so there's no need to repeat over and over again, or bring out unrelated issues.

Well its still a waist, develop your land before you create new land. How about they let there Towers fill up before they decide they are "Land Locked"
Or see how many people want a beach front property when you have a coastline of 20km or so, this is not about being landlocked, nobody has ever hinted in that direction. This is about increasing the coastline so that they can sell more beach fronted properties. It makes good business sense, when you are trying to create a tourist destination, tourists like being on the beach.

I will be petitioning for you to be banned from these forums dallasbrink, you fail to post anything rellevant, constantly bash dubai, and now have shown a very racist side. Will be PMing mods if it doesnt stop soon.

Not before 2009, even that some agencies are already offering packages for Atlantis starting from September or October, but only a naive should fall for that.

I don't know what effect the building of TRUMP Hotel will have on the monorail though, considering that will be build around and above the tracks. If they haven't done that particular part of the track yet, then I doubt they will do it before the foundations and substructure of the hotel tower are completed, which will mean maybe even a 2010 operation start for the monorail.

However all these is just my speculative talk.

No need for a petition, he already got a public "advice" to stop trolling.
