Construction work on Dubai’s The Palm Jebel Ali is on schedule with 55% of the reclamation completed below and above sea level and 30% reclamation visible above water, according to reports.
In addition, the reclamation of over four fronds has been completed with several to follow in rapid succession. Also reported was the completion of the trunk and the swift rising from the sea of the crescent.
“The area known as the trunk of the island has already been completed and is fully connected to the mainland. As to the reclamation work, it is now steadily progressing, and the breakwater is now 20% complete. I am pleased to report that The Palm Jebel Ali is completely on schedule, and we may even finish the project before the anticipated deadline,” said Sultan bin Sulayem, chairman of Nakheel, as he toured the site.
The Palm Jebel Ali project comprises approximately 100 million cubic metres of rock and sand from quarries around the UAE.
Bin Sulayem said the Nakheel engineering and construction team are working on a round-the-clock, seven days a week basis to ensure the timely completion of The Palm Jebel Ali. The master plan is now under way and designers and infrastructure specialists are now working towards completing the plan by the end of the year, he added.
