Dubai Municipality Launches Agricultural Beautification Project at Key Intersection

Dubai Municipality has kicked off a new project as part of its agricultural beautification efforts throughout the city. This particular project focuses on the intersection of Al Meydan and Al Khail Streets, a central hub in the heart of Dubai.

Encompassing a vast area of 302,266 square meters, this initiative showcases the Municipality’s dedication to increasing green spaces in Dubai and meticulously planning and executing beautification projects to enhance the city’s appearance.

The project incorporates advanced technologies utilized by the Municipality to implement sustainable irrigation systems and water drainage. These systems include fully automated irrigation mechanisms, reducing the need for manual intervention. Moreover, innovative wind-resistant spraying techniques have been integrated, resulting in a significant water-saving of approximately 30 per cent.

The Municipality’s sustainable groundwater and rainwater drainage systems have proven effective, particularly during recent rainfall events. Additionally, a pumping station with a capacity exceeding 280 cubic meters per hour and a tank with a capacity of 1,000 cubic meters have been established. As part of the beautification efforts at the intersection, multi-color linear lighting systems have also been installed.

Dubai Municipality’s Director General, Dawoud Al Hajri, underscored the importance of agricultural beautification initiatives and the Municipality’s commitment to expanding green spaces across Dubai. These endeavors align with the vision of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, to position Dubai as the world’s best city to live in.

Al Hajri emphasized the Municipality’s strategies to promote environmental sustainability by increasing green spaces in Dubai. The goal is to create a comprehensive environmental impact that preserves natural elements and resources while enhancing their quality, ultimately elevating Dubai’s attractiveness and aesthetic appeal for its residents.

Incorporating cutting-edge irrigation technologies that rely on fully recycled water, Al Hajri stated, “Dubai Municipality prioritizes the development of agricultural beautification projects to enhance Dubai’s vitality according to integrated world-class standards and foster sustainability.”

The design of the Al Meydan and Al Khail intersection drew inspiration from horse hoof prints, resulting in a unique artwork that blends natural elements with carefully selected ornamental plants. The Municipality has also enriched the landscape by planting a variety of evergreen tree species to enhance the city’s aesthetic appeal.

Moreover, ‘Chorisia’ trees (Chorisia Speciosa) will be planted for the first time at the intersection of Al Meydan and Al Khail Roads, marking a significant addition to Dubai’s greenery. These trees, known for their broad, swollen stem that acts as a water reservoir and large pink-red flowers, will further enhance the beauty of the area.

Dubai Municipality continues to implement agricultural beautification projects at the highest global standards, incorporating innovative design elements and state-of-the-art irrigation techniques using recycled water to promote environmental sustainability. The Municipality’s successful planting of over 185 thousand trees in 2023 as part of the Green Dubai initiative underscores its dedication to afforestation and enhancing green spaces in the Emirate, further demonstrating its commitment to environmental preservation and sustainability.
