Deira Clocktower roundabout to be restored
The Dubai Municipality has announced the start of the development of the Deira Clocktower roundabout. The project involves renovating the roundabout to enhance its aesthetic appeal by integrating hard floors with green spaces and colourful lighting, as well as upgrading the design of the fountain.
The project reflects the municipality’s desire to use its full potential to support sustainable urban development that meets Dubai’s futuristic urban and economic development goals and plans.
Dawoud Al Hajri, director general of Dubai Municipality, said: “Dubai Municipality has drawn up development plans for all the emirate’s prominent landmarks, including the Deira Clocktower roundabout, which is one of the remarkable monuments and architectural landmarks the city is famous for. By maintaining Dubai’s historical and architectural landmarks and preserving them for future generations, this project helps the municipality achieve its goals of introducing high-level sustainable urban planning that will improve the city’s attractiveness.”
The Dubai Municipality will ensure that the new modern design of the roundabout matches the Dubai theme, while preserving the old structure of the Clocktower roundabout without compromising its historical or architectural significance.
The Deira Clocktower roundabout is an important historical and architectural landmark and one of the most stunning clock towers in the world. The clock tower, which was built in 1963, holds a significant place in history as it was the first land crossing between Deira and Bur Dubai and is located at the intersection of Umm Hurair and Al Maktoum Streets, one of the most important intersections in Dubai. Prior to the construction of the Dubai-Abu Dhabi Road, it served as the initial junction point for the main highways going into Dubai.
