Infrastructure work on Ras Al Khaimah’s Al Marjan Island is progressing at good pace, Ras Al Khaimah Investment Authority (RAKIA) has announced.
Following work on Phase 1 of the infrastructure which started back in September 2008, Italian contractor Rizzani De Eccher began mobilisation in November last year on Phase 2 and anticipate completing all work within 20 months. By this point, the roads, street lighting and channel crossings for both Phases are also expected to be completed.
In a statement, Dr. Fawzi Shadid, Project Director of Rakeen, master developer of Al Marjan Island, revealed:
“We have finalised approximately 80% of infrastructure services such as Potable Water System, Storm Water System, Irrigation System, Rising main System and Vacuum System. By the time the first developers on the island complete their projects, all the infrastructure facilities will be available for a hook-up with their developments.”
These projects will include the luxury beachfront development Pacific, situated at the top of Al Marjan Island, scheduled to complete in 2011.
