This process began with the award of a contract to Samsung to build six of 8 bridges connecting the mainland to the trunk and crescent sections. Work has begun on the bridges which will eventually link to an estimated 125 km of roads on The Palm Jebel Ali.

The Palm Jebel Ali is a landmark commercial, residential, and tourism development for Dubai, which, along with the Dubai Waterfront project, will transform an area of empty desert and sea into a bustling international community, with an estimated population of 1.7 million people by 2020.

Work on The Palm Jebel Ali began in May 2002 with the construction of the breakwater and the beginning of land reclamation, while ground improvement works began in August 2006.
