Jubail Island Investment Company (JIIC) has announced the appointment of Gulf Contractors Company (GCC) to start enabling works for the AED5 billion ($1.3bn) Jubail Island in Abu Dhabi.
Enabling works, which are scheduled for completion in January 2020, will prepare the site for the installation of infrastructure such as roads, utilities, and other facilities.
It's expected that over 2.5 million cubic metres of material will be excavated and placed to create the formation level for over 40 kilometres of roadways and more than 800 residential properties.
Mounir Haidar, Managing Director of JIIC, said the development will include wildlife preservation areas and other conservation zones.
Jubail Island, which is located between Yas Island and Saadiyat Island, spans 400 hectares and will feature six investment zone villages – Marafaa Al Jubail, Nad Al Dhabi, Seef Al Jubail, Ain Al Maha, Souk Al Jubail and Bed’a Al Jubail.For all the latest construction news from the UAE and Gulf countries, follow us on Twitter and Linkedin, like us on Facebook and subscribe to our YouTube page, which is updated daily.
