With ‘Makani’ and the new street signs just announced this week, JVT residents fear no more! Being lost in JVT will soon be a thing of the past. No more waiting hours for your food delivery. Visiting friends should find you without circling hours around the neighborhood!
Have you seen these? The promise that it will be possible to navigate around JVT with ease…
Coming soon to a villa near you!
Nakheel has even designed a new community map. It’s color-coded by district. With three shades of blue and two shades of green, it is not clear that the color system will help much, but at least every villa and townhouse will display the district number. You’ll note that each house now has an alpha-numeric code.
Overall, this represents a clear improvement. Looking forward to seeing if there will be any other directional or way finding signs in the future. Personally, I don’t care for the road-side advertising that recently sprung up along Tulip Street and wonder if the fees will at least be re-invested in community development projects. Let’s ask Nakheel.
It looks like things are moving and the road through Jumeirah Park should soon be re-opened.

Looking better and better!
‘Makani’ – this must be what Nakheel has been waiting for!
Under the new ‘My Location’ system, every house and building in Dubai will now have its own unique number. Enter the number on http://www.makani.ae and bam, you’ll be effortlessly transported to your destination on Google map. Beam me up Scottie! Well almost. Ask the site to give you directions or convert your Makani number into GPS coordinates to text to the person looking for your place. Nothing easier ! I’ve tested the new online system which seems to work effortlessly. I’m not sure why the App requires access to my contacts, however, so I think I’ll hold off on downloading this for now. At least we can certainly expect food deliveries, taxis and ambulances to find us now, even in the black hole of a Triangle where we live.
With this new initiative, we can clearly say ‘welcome to the future’! Have you seen anything this amazing elsewhere? DXB Vision 2021 has just made street signs obsolete. Let’s hope Nakheel is clued in and doesn’t waste any more of our money by investing in superfluous signage. Why bother now. We’ve managed for four years without any and now our smart city has given us a fantastic tool. You have to love Dubai! I certainly do. Nevertheless, I will miss the creativity of all my neighbors and their hand made signs.
Here are some images of the JVT hand-made street signs (and the few ‘test’ signs made years ago) for the nostaligic at heart.
It looks like traffic relief is coming to residents in the JVT, JVP and JI neighborhoods soon. Qarn Al Sabkha road to open Friday.
This seems to be the new collection of fly-overs at the far end of Jumeirah Park which will now link all the way to Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Road (old Emirates Rd).
Here is a picture of the road access being opened Friday morning. Who has tried it?

It’s been some time since I’ve been able to post to the community. Have you all missed me?
I imagine that alot of you can understand how one get’s submerged with work or family duties. With the onset of summer I am eagerly awaiting what I feel is a well-deserved break from the routine! As Ramadam begins and the summer heat sets in, it’s time for us all to let up on the gas pedal, even if slightly, enjoy time with family and some days off. Before then, I want to get these recent community reports I’ve received out to all my followers in JVT.
The most recent news I’ve had about security and safety in JVT concerns the theft of motorcyles. It’s important we all stay vigilant and together we can ensure our community stays safe.
On June 9th, a fellow resident wrote to inform me that he had learned a motorcycle was stolen in JVT District 4, in the daytime. He had a direct experience a week before when a thief attempted to steal his bike and he awoke to find a broken lock. That same night, an attempt was also made to relieve his neighbor of his motorcycle that was chained up in his car port in District 9. Police and security were called but certainly a watchful community can also do alot to curb stealing. He’s also learned about the case of a stolen motorcylce in the Springs. This sounds like a repeat offender is about and we should all concern ourselves with theft to prevent such offences.
This concerned resident tells me that in the last year a few other items were taken from his yard including a garden hose and even a pair of old flip flops !
About two months ago, I had another message from a female resident. She’s a regular runner in JVT, for about three years now, in the early evenings or early on weekend mornings. She had started noticimg a suspicious white Nisssan Sunny that seemed to be following her about on a regular basis. The incidents were reported to security and she noted an increase of police presence after that. If others have noticed similiar concerns about their safety, make sure this is reported and unwanted visitors are kept out of our neighborhood.
Stay aware, be sure to question any suspicious characters lurking about and call the police to report anything out of the ordinary.

Nakheel has informed residents that road repairs will require road closure as of 21st April. Hopefully this won’t last too long !
