The UAE government has reviewed a series of construction and development projects in region and around the country worth US$544 million.

The “Follow-Up Committee of the Initiatives of the UAE President” meeting was chaired by Jaber Mohammed Ghanem Al Suwaidi, the General Director of the Court.

The committee also approved several major projects including the construction of 379 residential units at Al Khawaneej district in Dubai, located between Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Road and Emirates Road, at an investment of Dh501 million.

During the meeting, Al Suwaidi was briefed about the progress of the Sheikh Khalifa Specialist Hospital Project in Fujairah. The project, being developed at a cost of Dh865.9 million, is due for completion in February next year.

The 292-bed hospital, which covers an area of 83,965-square meters, will help in the treatment of victims of disasters and serious accidents, it stated.

The committee also approved two environmental projects worth Dh119 million, which are part of a series of comprehensive national waste management projects.

These include the restoration of the Julfar Landfill in Ras Al Khaimah and the construction of a central sewage treatment plant in Dibba Al Fujairah and the upgrading of landfills in Al Hail, Dana, Al Bidiyah and Hilla in Fujairah.

The committee also discussed the upgrading of the city landfill in Umm Al Qaiwain besides giving approval to road, lighting, flood water and sewage plant projects in many regions around the country.
