Dubai Holding has commenced major renovation works at Souk Madinat Jumeirah, its popular Arabian-inspired shopping and leisure destination in the heart of the Madinat Jumeirah Resort. Scheduled for completion over the next three months, the enhancements work, promise to create a more convenient and seamless visitor experience.
“Since its inception more than 15 years ago, Madinat Jumeirah has been a cornerstone of Dubai’s tourism industry, consistently drawing in millions of visitors annually. The current upgrade aims to not only improve the destination’s connectivity and infrastructure, but to also reimagine its core offerings and build on its reputation as one of Dubai’s most iconic leisure and entertainment-led retail destinations,” says Khalid Al Malik, managing director of Dubai Holding.
The renovation work is being conducted in collaboration with the Roads and Transport Authority (RTA), to be executed without impacting the access to the surrounding hotels or to the events taking place at Madinat Jumeirah. The renovations cover the interior areas and the main entrance, including the entrance to the conference halls. It will also include a complete redevelopment of the arterial roadways leading to and from the destination to optimise the flow of traffic and reduce waiting times for visitors arriving by car or bus. A dedicated taxis entrance and queue line will be developed, in addition to a separate bus parking area to relieve congestion and provide a quick and smooth entry and exit.
