Dubai Investments Park [DIP], a leading integrated commercial, industrial '&' residential community in the Middle East wholly-owned by Dubai Investments PJSC, has announced the opening of the new entrance and exit points which is set to ease the traffic flow to and from the development.
The new entrance, which was opened earlier this week, facilitates movement of light vehicles to DIP's industrial, commercial and residential areas from the Sheikh Mohammed Bin Zayed Road leading from Abu Dhabi. The project was built at a cost of approximately AED 15 million. The exit was opened in September 2013.
"The new entrance to Dubai Investments Park from Sheikh Mohammed Bin Zayed Road is a major step in alleviating inbound traffic and ease tailbacks for vehicles entering DIP from Abu Dhabi. DIP is today 90% fully operational, and increased movement within our commercial and residential space necessitated this move," said Saeed Bugaraah, Chief Operating Officer of DIP.
He added: "Our strategic location close to the Al Maktoum International Airport, Jebel Ali Port and the arterial highways also leads to heavy truck and cargo traffic to and from DIP. We are constantly working closely with the Roads '&' Transport Authority [RTA] to develop and upgrade the infrastructure from time to time to meet the demands of our tenants." The opening of the new entrance comes close on the heels of the RTA announcing the expansion of the Lehbab [Al Yalayis] road project leading to DIP main entrance. The project, expected to be completed within 18 months, includes construction of a dual four-lane road linking the Shaikh Mohammed Bin Zayed Road to the Emirates Road.
One of the largest business and residential communities in the Middle East, DIP is a self-contained city offering state-of-the-art facilities and world-class infrastructure.
