A planned, man-made 75 km canal is the Arabian Canal that is on hold now. The construction of the canal would have done by 2012 but due to some reasons it was on hold. It will begin at the Dubai Marina, go around the Al Maktoum International Airport before joining hands with the sea at the outer end of Palm Jebel Ali.
Dubai Waterfront would be the first phase of the larger Arabian Canal. Its construction is led by a famous company called Limitless. The canal was designed as fully navigable with methods to prevent tidal control.
Highlights: There is a network which is tightly woven including roadways and transit that will link a huge range of communities and open spaces to the public places, wetlands and parks. The integrated systems of energy, water and waste would be doing a tremendous help and they are mutually beneficial as well.
The plans to build the canal called for $50 billion to construct a new city that would need 20000 hectares of land at the south bank of the channel. Totally, the canal will be 150 meters wide and six meters deep which can easily give space to yachts up to 40 meters to move through.
Location: Sheikh Zayed Road, Dubai, United Arab Emirates.
Timings: A definite idea on timings is not given by the authority.
Price: As of now, the entry Price to Arabian Canal is not decided.
