Engineering, construction, technical, and professional services provider, Parsons, says it has been awarded a contract by the Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) to perform infrastructure design services for the Dubai Water Canal Project.

Planned to be a major tourist destination, the Dubai Water Canal will include a new shopping center, hotels, and restaurants, in addition to luxury housing and cycling paths. It is expected to provide new areas for public places and facilities, as well as private marinas for boats and a new trade center at the canal’s entrance.

“Parsons has been working with RTA for many years, and we look forward to continuing to be RTA’s partner of choice for this landmark project,” said Hamed Zaghw, President of Parsons International Limited.

A Parsons joint venture was selected by RTA to perform construction supervision services for the Dubai Water Canal Project earlier this year. Once completed, the project will add 6 km to the Dubai waterfront and is expected to attract many visitors.

Parsons explains that it has been working in the MEA (Middle East Africa) region for more than 60 years and has offices in the United Arab Emirates, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, and Bahrain. Parsons’ portfolio of ongoing projects in the MEA region includes major highways, bridges, rail and transit, airports, ports, water infrastructure, plus hospitals, public schools, universities, mosques, and other public buildings.
