You may have noticed that the unsightly sewage trucks have stopped passing through JVT on their way to offload the waste from Jumeirah Park. Nakheel, 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.

Have you always wanted to have a lakefront house? Some on JVT can enjoy easy water access today!
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.
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.
Nakheel has informed residents that road repairs will require road closure as of 21st April. Hopefully this won’t last too long !
