Residents at Jumeirah Village Circle in Dubai can look forward to easier access to the community via three new JVC/Hessa Street link roads that will open later this year.
Nakheel has awarded a contract for AED18.5 million to construct the new JVC access points, which will improve traffic flow and reduce journey times at one of Dubai’s largest and fastest-growing communities, the developer said.
Nakheel has appointed UAE-based DX Contracting LLC and National Gulf Construction LLC to jointly deliver the new roads. Work will begin in February, with anticipated completion in Q3 2016.
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.”
Nakheel has delivered more than 700 villas at JVC, with over 265 buildings, villas and townhouses by third party developers either complete or under construction. A further 239 residential, commercial and hospitality buildings by sub-developers are currently in design stage.
JVC will also be home to The Circle Mall, Nakheel’s new shopping, dining and entertainment hub, with 235 shops, cafes and restaurants and a multi-screen cinema. Construction will begin this year.
Jumeirah Village Circle also features 33 landscaped parks, spanning more than four million square feet in total.
