Nakheel awards AED 18.5m contract for new roads at Jumeirah Village Circle

DUBAI, 21st January, 2016 (WAM) — Dubai developer Nakheel has awarded a AED 18.5m contract to build new access roads at its Jumeirah Village Circle development.

UAE-based DX Contracting and National Gulf Construction have jointly won the deal for the three new JVC/Hessa Street link roads. Work will begin in February, with anticipated completion in Q3 2016, Nakheel confirmed in a statement.

A Nakheel spokesman said, “Around 20,000 people currently live in JVC, but this rapidly-growing mixed-use development will accommodate some 300,000 people when complete.

“The new road links will enhance JVC in both the short and long term by tackling the immediate needs of residents and addressing the future needs of the community as it expands.”
