The Dubai Municipality on Tuesday unveiled a number of new projects, including a new convention centre with 7,000-seat capacity, an industrial city, a network of sewage tunnels and a 100-hectare Safari Golf project. The projects seeking to make Dubai a green and fully sustainable city by 2021 were unveiled during a visit to the municipality by His Highness Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai.

Sheikh Mohammed was briefed by Hussain Nasser Lootah, Director-General of the municipality. The projects include a convention centre, Safari Golf, an industrial city, sewerage tunnels, Dubai Stairs, scrap and bicycle market projects as well as green buildings.

Lootah said the convention centre will come up on five hectares and will include Rashid Hall to accommodate 7,000 people as well as other halls, offices and two hotels.

The Safari Golf project will include a 30-hectare service area and a golf academy. Also, a vertical industrial city will come up in the Al Layan area in 280 hectares. The project will comprise three industrial residential and hotel areas as well as a business park.

Sheikh Mohammed was also briefed on the sewerage tunnels project, which will replace existing plants.

The tunnels will be four to six metres deep and are designed to last 100 years. The new network will meet demands of Dubai's population and urban growth and help save 30 per cent of electricity and reduce the carbon footprint.

Dubai Stairs, a cultural and sports project, will consist of 500 stairs. The scrap and bicycle market will cover 11 hectares in Warsan.

Sheikh Mohammed signed the palm document-regulations to evaluate green buildings. This includes gold, silver, bronze and platinum palms awards to be presented by the municipality in recognition of green buildings.

The regulations will be implemented during the first half of next October. They are expected to save 34 per cent of energy and reduce the carbon footprint over the next five years. – Gulf News with inputs from WAM -
