Dubai Municipality has initiated a Dh112m ($30.49m) project to upgrade and rehabilitate the retaining walls along Dubai Creek in the United Arab Emirates.

This initiative is aimed at enhancing the structural integrity and functionality of the creek’s walls by upgrading the dock and reconstructing sections that have deteriorated over 50 years. 

It also is intended to mitigate the risk of flooding during adverse weather conditions, minimising disruptions to commercial traffic. 

The project will be executed in two phases.  

The first phase will focus on a 2.1km stretch on the Deira side of the creek while the subsequent phase will address a 2.3km length on the Bur Dubai side. 

Dubai Municipality director general Dawoud Al Hajri emphasised the project’s alignment with Dubai’s vision of innovation and attractiveness.

Al Hajri said: “We have implemented several measures to mitigate the risks posed by climate change and rising sea levels, closely monitoring changes on both sides of the creek.  

“Furthermore, we have conducted technical studies to devise construction designs that can enhance the efficiency of the marine docks on both banks. These designs adhere to the highest global standards, ensuring the preservation of the supporting walls’ stability and safeguarding against increased flooding during seasonal weather conditions.” 

The 14-month project timeline includes the restoration of the Deira pier, with comprehensive work on replacing and rehabilitating damaged sections of the concrete wall.  

In July last year, Dubai Municipality issued the first licence for the construction of a private residence using 3D printing technology.  

The technique supports the city’s aims and the Dubai 3D Printing Strategy 2030 goals.
