Dubai’s master developer, Nakheel, has revealed that Deira Island Front at the base of Palm Deira will have three 12-lane bridges that will connect the island to mainland Deira.

Nakheel also announced today that the construction and infrastructure works for Palm Deira are on schedule. A dedicated state-of-the-art sales centre set for the project will be completed in December and will have a grand opening at the beginning of 2009.

The 12-lane bridges will connect Deira Island Front with mainland Deira between the mouth of Dubai Creek and Port Hamriya Deira via Abu Baker Al Siddique Road, Abu Hail Road and Omar Bin Khattab Road.

Decking has been laid for the first of these bridges, joining Abu Baker Al Siddique Road, and is due for completion in May 2009, with an access road to Deira Island to be completed by November 2008.

Located between the mouth of Dubai Creek and Port Hamriya, the entire Palm Deira development will add an estimated 226km of coastline to Dubai for a population of 1.3 million people. Palm Deira is destined to be the largest man-made island in the world and will be 7.5 times bigger than Palm Jumeirah and five times bigger than Palm Jebel Ali.

The infrastructure development at Palm Deira is expected to be delivered on schedule. Piling work has begun on the first complex on Deira Island Front, the first phase of the project and gateway to Palm Deira.

“We are extremely pleased with the progress on all fronts of the Palm Deira development and are delighted to report that we are running on schedule at Deira Island. Connecting the first phase of Palm Deira with existing Deira will stimulate and revitalise the oldest part of our city, increasing real estate value and attracting business to the area.

“Having the infrastructure in place on the development is of great importance as it will play an integral part in the continuing development of Palm Deira and combined with the completion of the sales centre we are making significant steps forward.”
