The installation of fences and gates around Dubai World Central (DWC), the 140-square kilometre, multi-phase urban land development centred around what is to become the worlds largest airport - the DWC-Al Maktoum International Airport - has been completed.

Stretching across a total of 80 kilometres at a cost of AED 26 million, the fences and gates cover the remaining unfenced sections of DWC site boundary, all free zone area across Dubai Logistics City and DWC Aviation City, and the Phase 1 of the airfield.

The entire fencing is equivalent to that of securing an area nearly twice the size of Hong Kong Island a feat quite remarkable in itself, said Abdulla Al Falasi, DWCs Director of Marketing and Corporate Communications.

A total of around 30,000 tonnes of steel and wires were used throughout the entire area, which took workers some 365 days to finish.

By this special fencing of the DWC site boundary, its internal landside and airside fences, and the free zone area, the way has been paved for a clear delineation and security within DWCs major components, Al Falasi added.

It also provides for the necessary security and protection from any possible untoward outside intrusion as DWCs construction, particularly that of the DWC-Al Maktoum International Airport goes full steam ahead.

Other infrastructure work within DWC such at the cargo terminal building, control tower, navigational aids, aprons and taxiways, central utility complexes (CUC), electrical substation, fuel staging area, fire stations and police facility are expected to be completed soon.

The first flight in and out of DWC-Al Maktoum International Airport is expected by end of 2009.
