Dubai Water Canal is an infrastructure overhaul which winds its way to the Arabian Gulf from the old Dubai Creek effectively turning a significant part of Dubai into an island. This 3.2 kilometres long waterway ranges 80 to 120m in width, is six meters in depth and cuts through Dubai’s main artery, the Sheikh Zayed Road connecting with the Arabian Gulf.
The canal has several pedestrian bridges across, allowing visitors to cross at key points to take in the stunning vistas and observe the passage of water vessels. There is also a mechanical waterfall, where the Canal meets the Sheikh Zayed Road Bridge. This motion-operated water wonder pumps water through the bridge in a constant flow, visible from the promenade, and can be switched off when a sensor detects a boat nearby.
