Dubai's Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) has awarded contracts for Phases 4 and 5 of the Dubai Water Canal project.

According to the $191.4m (AED703m) deals, works in both phases are set for completion by the end of September this year.

Highlighting the latest phases of the project, HE Mattar Al Tayer, director-general and chairman of the board of executive directors of RTA, said: "Phase 4 of the Dubai Water Canal project, which costs about $83.5m (AED307m), is part of infrastructural works required to serve property development areas on both sides of the Canal, including roads and utility lines.

"Phase 5, which costs about $107.9m (AED396m), would link the Business Bay Canal with the Dubai Water Canal terminating at the Arabian Gulf.

"Works include building quay walls of precast concrete slabs all along the stretch of the Canal, and completing and diverting utility lines and key services to give way for completing the construction works of the Canal as well as the removal of impacted services.

"Works also include the treatment of hyper-saline water of the Business Bay Lakes, removing sand barriers in the course of the Canal, and constructing three marine transport stations on both sides of the Canal,” Al Tayer added, according to Dubai Media Office.
