WHAT IS PALM JUMEIRAH ?


  • The Palm Jumeirah is an artificial archipelago in the United Arab Emirates, created using land reclamation by Nakheel which extends into the Persian Gulf
  • It is part of a larger series of developments called the Palm Islands, including Palm Jebel Ali and Palm Deira, which, when completed, will together increase Dubai’s shoreline by a total of 520 kilometres
  • It has an estimated population of 10500 as of 2016
  • It is located on the Jumeirah coastal area of the emirate of Dubai, in the United Arab Emirates

HOW IS THE TRANSPORTATION INSIDE PALM JUMEIRAH ?


PALM JUMEIRAH MONORAIL


  • Palm Jumeirah Monorail is a 5.4-kilometre-long  monoail connecting the Atlantis Hotel to the Gateway Towers at the foot of the island
  • The monorail connects the Palm Jumeirah to the mainland, with a planned further extension to the Red Line of the Dubai Metro
  • The line began operating on 30 April 2009
  • It is the first monorail in the Middle East

PALM JUMEIRAH : CONSTRUCTION


  • Construction of the Palm Jumeirah island began in June 2001 and the developers announced handover of the first residential units in 2006
  • In early October 2007, the Palm Jumeirah had already become the world’s largest artificial island
  • Also at this time, 75% of the properties were ready to hand over, with 500 families already residing on the island. 
  • By the end of 2009, 28 hotels were opened on the Crescent
  • The complexities of the construction were blamed, in part, for the extended delays to the completion of the project, the date of which was pushed back multiple times and was nearly two years late.

PALM JUMEIRAH : WATER QUALITY


  • The outer breakwater was designed as a continuous barrier, but by preventing natural tidal movement, the seawater within the Palm became stagnant
  • The problem was corrected by adding another gap in the barrier
  • The breakwater was subsequently modified to create gaps on either side, allowing tidal movement to oxygenate the water within and prevent it stagnating, albeit less efficiently than would be the case if the breakwater did not exist
  • The breakwater has actually encouraged marine life and that new marine species are moving into the area
