Shaikh Mohammed directed for expansion of the wharf in the near future so that it becomes nearer to the Hamriya port in Deira.

His Highness Shaikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, on Sunday inspected Deira Wharf, fully accomplished by the Dubai Municipality at a cost of Dh250 million, at the entrance of Dubai Creek.

Shaikh Mohammed stopped at the wharf, observing the movement of arriving and departing boats loaded with cargo and commercial goods.

He was briefed on the harbour facilities and services being provided to large and medium boats and other facilities for some of competent local government departments.

Shaikh Mohammed was accompanied by Shaikh Ahmed bin Saeed Al Maktoum, Chairman of Dubai Civil Aviation Authority and Chairman of Emirates Group, and Khalifa Saeed Suleiman, Director- General of the Department of Protocol and Hospitality in Dubai.

While at the wharf, he was briefed about the safety features built into the facilities for users of the quay, deeming it “vital for the Dubai Creek for receiving tens of commercial ships and contributing to the revitalization of the local trade and re-export, as well as raise the rate of economic growth in our country.”

Hussein Nasser Lootah, Director-General of Dubai Municipality, expressed his satisfaction with Shaikh Mohammed’s inspection visit to the Deira Wharf, which can now receive bigger boats with ease.

​”The port has been expanded for loading, unloading and storing. This definitely increases the capacity of the port to handle the larger commercial boats to activate the trade in Dubai in particular and in the UAE in general,” Lootah said.
