Creek extension

Like so many construction projects in Dubai, this is bonkers.

They’ll manage it though!

It’s a shame it has to cut through an existing very pleasant peaceful area. The Jumeirah side will be massively affected. There’s so much space in Dubai, does it really make sense to uproot something that’s settled and working?

I was rather hoping our area would settle down in about five years’ time, but I can’t see this being completed in that timeframe and the construction’s going to cause huge disruption. A lot of pricey villas and families are going to be uprooted. I can’t see how the new development is going to handle the traffic it will attract, either.
