Generational construction project reliant upon expertise of Khansaheb Sykes

The $1.37billion Shindagha Corridor is a five-phase project currently being undertaken by Dubai’s Road and Transport Authority. Aimed at improving various local roadways in the heart of the city, the development is expected to be completed in 2025.

The construction of a new underpass has now reached a critical stage, with a series of perimeter deep wells recently put in place to help tackle the presence of groundwater on site.
