Travel News Asia Latest Travel News Podcasts Friday, 3 October 2008

Grading work on the fourth phase of Dubai World Central (DWC) - the 140-square kilometre, multi-phase urban land development centred around the worlds largest airport - has been completed at a cost of AED 46 million, enabling contractor access to a crucial component of the project DWC Aviation City.

The US$1.36 billion DWC Aviation City will be home to DWCs executive jet terminal and one of the worlds largest MRO centres, with many operators ready to start construction on-site.

Over 3.739 million cubic metres of earth was moved over four months for phase four. A total of 64.735 million cubic metres of earth has been moved over all four phases covering over 74.39 square kilometres since grading first commenced in January 2005.

With the fourth phase of grading complete we can start to plan the allotment of land for DWC Aviation City tenants, said Abdulla Al Falasi, DWCs Director of Marketing & Corporate Communications. This will enable DWC Aviation City operators to be operational by 2010-11.

All four grading phases were carried out by Dubai-based Trident Transport Company.

Phase 1 grading work included Dubai Logistics City (DLC) while phase 2 grading work was spread across areas earmarked for DWC-Al Maktoum International Airport and parts of DWC Residential City, in addition to DLCs Headquarters and Office Park.

DWCs phase 3 grading covered parceled zones earmarked for a balanced mix of residential, retail and hotels, in addition to communal areas reserved for educational, cultural, health and recreational activities as well as mosques, sports and entertainment centres.

Dubai World Central has already commenced phase 5 of the grading works which is expected to be completed by July 2009. This will cover areas adjacent to the first runway.
