1-2 December are the dates for UAE National Day. Hence why the building was bathed in the colours of the UAE flag




40 years this year

RTA staffs ascend to the highest point on earth

The event aimed to have a closer look at Dubai achievements as part of UAE National Day celebrations



The Roads & Transport Authority – Manal Khalid:
A delegation from Monitoring & Enforcement Dep't at the Roads & Transport Authority (RTA) ascended to the highest point in the planet represented in the Observation Deck at the 124th floor of Burj Khalifa, as part of RTA's diverse cast of events & festivities held in celebration of the UAE 40th National Day. The delegation was acquainted with all the facilities and services provided by the tower along with its construction phases and number of visitors who popped in.

The delegation was accompanied by the CEO of RTA Licensing Agency Ahmed Bahrozyan, Director of Monitoring & Enforcement Ahlam Al-Feel, and a number of officials.
Bahrozyan praised the visit as it left a positive impact on the employees who have had a better idea of this mammoth structure the Dubai has managed to build; which is viewed as a towering solid achievement made under the Union that has turned into a UAE landmark and a prime destination of visitors, tourists and residents. Examples of other achievements turned from dream into a concrete reality include the Dubai Metro; which has brought about a quantum shift in the public transport systems.
The visitors were familiarized with the latest observation devices on the deck enabling them to have a panoramic view of the Dubai landmarks, key tourist areas and projects still under construction. They were also treated to dazzling shows of the Dancing Fountain beside the skyscraper and gathered all information about it including its length stretching 272 meters spanning an area of more than 12 hectares. The fountain shoots water as high as 150 m into the air (equivalent to a 50-storey building), and has sprinklers that jet about 22 thousand gallons of water into the air as well as glowing lights visible from more than 30 km afar not only on the ground but even from the sky, rendering it the most shining point in the Middle East,

Interesting building. Would look strange in nearly every other city, but it fits this city. I must say, Dubai still looks like a barren wasteland despite these very tall buildings and its past building boom.

In the new parts of Dubai, that may be true, but the older parts of the city are much more dense

Yes. The reason pictures are rare is because the area is not open to the public.
