Warqa Dump to turn into leading residential unit

The Dubai Municipality is planning to turn the construction dump of Al Warqa into a leading residential unit, by creating a unique design.The execution of this project will be carried out as per the directives from the Vice President and Prime Minister of UAE and Ruler of Dubai, His Highness Shaikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum.

A technical task force, which is headed by the Acting Director General of the Municipality, Hussein Lootah, has already been set up. The team is said to have visited the site for identifying the acceptable altitudes and coordinates, and other planning requirements.

The dump in the area will be reclaimed by restructuring the contour elevations, and the area will be filled with arable soil and sand. A big public garden is likely to be done and other infrastructure facilities including drainage and sewerage network is being planned.

Another alternative for disposal of construction waste has also been explored. The Warqa dump usually receives 35,000 tonnes of construction wastes a day from 2800 odd trucks, in addition to 300 trucks of surplus sands from projects. The municipality has entered into a contract with a company specialized in managing and recycling the construction waste.
