Development and construction works of Dubai Maritime City, the world's first purpose-built maritime centre, are progressing apace, with the six-lane causeway connecting the mega project to Dubai now fully complete and finished on time.

In addition, 50% of the planned industrial precinct (managed by JADAF Dubai) in the Maritime City is now complete and operational. "We are pleased with the significant progress that has been made on the project so far. One of our proudest accomplishments to date is that we have been able to achieve this months ahead of schedule,' said Amer Ali, CEO of Dubai Maritime City.

A number of other infrastructure developments in the industrial precinct are also currently well underway, with the 3000 tonne ship lift operational and the larger 6000 tonne ship lift standing at more than 70% completion. More than half of the warehouses and workshops are also operational, and when completed the precinct will have the capacity to berth more than 80 vessels.
