Dubai Industrial Park (DI), a designated district within Dubai Wholesale City (DWSC), has awarded infrastructure development and road expansion project at a total cost of AED 135 million in a bid to boost the industrial sector activity.
Divided into two phases spanning an area of 16 million square feet, the project is scheduled to be completed by the end of 2018, according to DI’s statement.
The project’s first phase includes enhancements and expansion of the road networks, while the second involves an implementation of the groundwork across 16 million square feet.
The DI chose Wade Adams to complete the project’s first phase, which is a Dubai-headquartered general construction and project development company with international experience.
The UAE’s industrial sector achieved a growth of 3.4% in 2016 compared to 0.6% a year earlier, representing 9.5% of the nation’s gross domestic product (GDP).
