Jubail Island Investment Company has announced the completion of the construction for the main bridge linking the Jubail Island project to Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan highway (E12), which will become the main entry route to Jubail Island
The bridge plays an important role in providing easy, direct access to Jubail Island as well as proximity to public parks, open spaces and cycling tracks. It will also link different villages within the island to each other as well as facilitating movement between the two sides of the island, where the Jubail Mangrove Park, Jubail Pura Eco Retreat and the marine activities are located, and the rest of the existing developments that lie in the island.
The bridge stands 140 metres long and serves as the main entrance to the island, helping facilitate movement in and out of the island. Visitors will now be able to access the island directly from Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan highway (E12) through taking Exit 17. The construction of the bridge commenced on August 25, 2021.
As part of the bridge development, intelligent traffic signal systems have been introduced as well as street lighting, pedestrian signals and speed control systems. The bridge has been developed to benefit the local surroundings with afforestation and beautification of the area.
Abdulla Saeed Al Shamsi, operations corporate director for JIIC, said, “We are pleased to announce the completion of the construction for the main bridge of the Jubail Island project. This is an important milestone for JIIC, as this achievement constitutes an important step towards accelerating the pace of development work on the island due to the bridge’s strategic location which will help to facilitate more accessible movement between various areas. JIIC is committed to delivering works in line with the deadlines set for all development on Jubail Island, with land-plots ready to be handed over end of 2022 and villa hand-over at the beginning of 2024.”
"We extend our sincere thanks to the UAE government agencies for their continuous support. We would also like to thank all the engineering teams working with the Department of Municipalities and Transport, and the Department of Municipalities and Transport, and the Integrated Transport Center for their rapid responses and prompt completion of transactions. This reflects the commitment of various sectors to support our leadership’s vision to mobilise the private sector and ensure steady and sustainable growth for the real estate sector and while elevating urban and economic development in Abu Dhabi.
Owned by JIIC and developed and managed by LEAD Development, the US$2bn Jubail Island, will be home to an idyllic collection of six residential village estates located between Yas Island and Saadiyat Island.
