Dubai infrastructure jobs
The city of Dubai has one of the best infrastructure facilities in the world through its policy of investing heavily in transport, energy, telecommunications, and industrial infrastructure. As a result, the city’s extensive network of infrastructure enables smooth running of business and ensures a high quality of life for its citizens. Some of the key infrastructure in Dubai includes:
- The Dubai Metro
- Logistics facilities
- Conference centers
- Shopping centers
The roads in Dubai have been ranked second in the world amongst cities for overall quality, and eighth in terms of quality of overall infrastructure.
One of the largest infrastructure developments in Dubai was the Dubai metro system. This was opened in 2009 and is the longest unmanned light rail network in the world. The metro system is continuously undergoing updates to improve transport links for the public and there are now plans to install a new line in the Dubai metro system which will connect the current Dubai International Airport with the new Dubai World Central Al Maktoum International Airport at Jebel Ali.
World Expo 2020
Dubai’s successful bid to host the 2020 world expo will result in increased investment into new infrastructure projects around the city. Around 25 million tourists are expected to visit Dubai during the six month event, and approximately $8.1bn will be invested into new infrastructure. Some of the major infrastructure projects expected to take place over the next few years include:
- Expansion of the Dubai Metro Red Line
- New concourses at the Maktoum International Airport
- Interchanges on the Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed road
- Construction of the main Expo 2020 centre.
The increase in infrastructure development and the successful Expo 2020 bid will result in greater opportunities for companies in the infrastructure development industries to get involved in new construction projects in Dubai.
