By Rajive Singh

DUBAI 13 March 2018: Your parking woes at Dubai Courts alongside the Dubai Creek will be over in 36 months.

Sheikh Maktoum bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Deputy Ruler of Dubai and Chairman of the Dubai Judicial Council, yesterday signalled the start of the construction of the Cassation Court and Smart Parking buildings project, which is located at the former employee parking area next to the Dubai Courts building.

The ‘Smart Parking’ project will provide 1,232 smart parking spaces, with ten entrances and exits, compared to the previous parking lot that only had 300 parking spaces. A total of 950 smart parking spaces will be allocated for the public, and 373 for employees.

Taresh Eid Al Mansouri, Director-General of Dubai Courts, Abdulqader Musa, Deputy Director-General of Dubai Courts, and several general managers and senior figures, were present.

The project is being managed by Dubai Courts, in co-operation with the private sector, as the first project based on Law 22 for 2015 regarding partnerships between the public and private sectors in Dubai. The private company will handle the cost of the building for the Dubai Courts, which totals around Dh290 million. The project is expected to be completed within 36 months.

It covers an area of 270,000 square feet, with 47,000 square feet being allocated to the Dubai Courts.

The Cassation Court building will house the court’s sessions, including the Appeal Court, and will include the new offices of the Dubai Courts, as well as a sports club for the judicial authority, and a smart legal library that is twice the size of the current library.
