The Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) released the first map of
Dubai's District Addressing System that includes 14 districts and the
list of communities under each of them.
People will now have to familiarise themselves with names of at least
four new districts.
The Hadaeq Mohammed bin Rashid (Mohammed bin Rashid Gardens) district
covers the Mohammed bin Rashid City which is slated to be the hub of
family tourism, and surrounding communities including Al Quoz, Al
Barsha, Nad Al Sheba and Al Thanyah.
The other three new names of districts are Madinat Al Maktoum District
- which covers the localities surrounding Al Maktoum International
Airport - Madinat Al Qudra and Al Wajeha Al Bahriah districts that
cover areas towards the Southeast and Southwest of it.
The remaining districts are Deira, Bur Dubai, Nakhlat Deira (Palm
Deira), Mushrif, Al Awir, Ras Al Khor, Zabeel, Jumeirah, Dubai Land
and Jebel Ali.
There are many communities under each district. You can see street
name and district name on the road sign boards. For example, you will
see Jumeirah written just below the name of Umm Suqeim.
The ambitious project of revamping the addressing system in the
emirate in cooperation with the Dubai Municipality also involves
replacing the old system of street numbers with unique names to
streets. Almost all main roads have been covered under the project and
all new projects comply with it.
