Having recently returned to JVT after a long summer holiday, I noticed all the new street indications with joy. Luckily we still have the home-made models that help us get around.
Last week, homeowners received a notice explaining that Nakheel has now decided to help us find our way. It has been nearly four years since the the first homes were handed over. Better late than never as the saying goes! We’ve also learned that these directional signs are only temporary. Yes, at long last we can hope to have actual street signs, preferably on every street corner. With luck, these rare beauties showcased below will make their appearance throughout JVT. Wait and see.
The other big news is that JVT, which is already a thriving community, will soon become a ‘gated’ community. With some luck, this might help reduce the number of missing items people are regularly posting about on Facebook. Presenting a pass at the entry gates may or may not stem such unseemly behaviour as petty theft. Frankly, I would rather some time and effort be spent on improving the road access leading into and out of JVT. Priority might also be given to sign-posting the main entrance off the Sheik Mohammed bin Zayed highway, for example? What do you say? (Leave a reply below.)
This is the original note from Nakheel:
Dear Valued Owners/Residents,
We are pleased to inform you that a decision was made by Nakheel Management to convert Jumeirah Village Triangle into a gated community. Nakheel Asset Management & Infrastructure (NAMI) is committed to providing a safe and secure environment for Jumeirah Village residents.
We are strengthening the security by fencing the Community and installing access control systems at each entrance-exit to and from the Community. Each gate will be equipped with a gatehouse, barriers equipped with an access control system.
We are currently in the procurement phase for the necessary material and works. We will be able to share with you the program of works once made available.
On a separate note, kindly note that the directional signage installed recently in the Community are for temporary use only whilst we are procuring the final signage in accordance with the local standards. We have installed the temporary signage in order to improve getting in and out of the Community for residents and visitors in order to avoid waiting for the final signage to be installed.
