No more honey wagons in JVT

You may have noticed that the unsightly sewage trucks have stopped passing through JVT on their way to offload the waste from Jumeirah Park. poopoo-truckNakheel, the master developer has confirmed to the JVT Community blog that a new route has been negotiated with the authorities to get these trucks off our roads. We should no longer catch a glimpse of the orange vehicles cruising along Tulip or Orchid Streets.

While disposal of Jumeirah Park sewage continues at the far end of our community, just outside the JVT limits, Nakheel has also taken the initiative to ensure that half of these trucks are diverted to another dumping location. Therefore, fewer tankers will actually be accessing that temporary disposal site.

I was informed by a company spokesperson that Nakheel is currently in the process of appointing a contractor to build a pipeline that will carry sewage directly from Jumeirah Park to the sewage treatment plant, ending the need to use the disposal point at the edge of the JVT community in the future.  This should be completed in 2017 giving residents the long-term solution we would expect.

After a few residents brought this issue to the attention of the blog, we actively sollicited information on the solutions to this problem from Nakheel. We will do our best to bring residents more updates on community infrastructure.

Hopefully everyone has arrived home safe and sound. More rain expected tomorrow and schools are closed.

There seems to be a bit of damage around the village.

It seems we have faired better than Abu Dhabi. A video of a ceiling collapse which appears to have been in AD today.

Stay safe!



Have you seen the signs?

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.

Exit to Al Khail Road now open ! !

Happy National Day to UAE residents and citizens alike !

Yesterday, for the first time,  we were able to access Al Khail Road in a safe manner. It felt like an early National Day present to all those living in JVT! You no longer need to pass over the gravel path and exit through the back gate cutting across sand and treacherous ditches. The access road to reach Al Khail is open and it’s a smooth ride that now takes you out of JVT. Once out, you can either immediately move over into the left hand lane to enter the round-about and circle back to take Al Khail road toward Dubai. Or you can access Emirates Road in either direction for Dubai or Abu Dhabi. 

As today is National Day, one must admire and reflect upon the amazing growth of the UAE and particularly on the incredible feats pulled off by Dubai. While some of us may grumble about the road-works and various other inconveniences associated with rapid growth, you must nevertheless appreciate and marvel at the impressive infrastructure of this great city. 

Of course, we still eagerly await more improvements such as the opening of the u-turn access on the Al Khail round-about that will allow travelers from Abu Dhabi to turn around and return on Emirates Road to access the JVT main gate. Easier access to the Springs road (Hessa street) would be nice as well. With luck, maybe one of those will be our New Year’s gift from Nakheel !

Happy Driving and stay safe on National Day.
