Dubai Vegetables and Fruits market to get Dh400 million facelift
The development aims to satisfy needs of the market's supply, display, sales, distribution and import of fruits and vegetables
Dubai Municipality announced starting a Dh400 million facelift for the Vegetables and Fruits market in Al Warsan.
The development aims to satisfy needs of the market's supply, display, sales, distribution and import of fruits and vegetables.
Khalid Mohammed Sharif Al Awadhi, Assistant Director-General for Environment and Public Health at DM, said a committee has been formed to address the renovation. The municipality held meetings with vendors to discuss current challenges faced at the market to address during renovations.
Eng. Juma Al Fuqae, Director of the municipality's Assets Management Department, said the new development will provide larger areas for loading and unloading of goods, parking areas for trucks and safer display and distribution of food items in temperature-controlled settings. The renovated market will also offer specialized tracks for cars, bicycles, and pedestrians while developing framework that organizes the market's activities and gathers waste.
"We will also separate tracks between trucks and other cars. Our plan focuses on ensuring smooth flow of traffic outside and inside the market, and providing underground hydraulic waste containers," said Al Fuqae.
The market, which occupies 990,330 square meters, had its two existing wholesale yards expanded by 50 per cent, in addition to a new yard that has been constructed for wholesales with an area of 11,940 square meters to accommodate the market growth and high numbers of trucks.
