Al Nahda res­i­dents puts spot­light on com­mu­nity

7 Days in Dubai - - DEAR 7 DAYS -

I live in Al Nahda 1 and re­cently there have been some road­works go­ing on to im­prove the roads, side­walks and lights. They have made many car parks, two-lane roads and many round­abouts, but the prob­lem is THERE IS ONLY ONE EXIT. So, it does not mat­ter how many roads they build be­cause in the morn­ing it still takes 40 min­utes to get out of Al Nahda 1. Also there is a huge sand strip be­tween Shar­jah and Dubai that I call ‘No man’s land’ be­cause there is no de­vel­op­ment and ev­ery day hun­dreds of peo­ple cross this strip - moth­ers with baby carts hav­ing to push them on sand, huge holes, no pave­ment. It looks like the slums of a de­vel­op­ing country. An­other con­cern is a lack of pub­lic parks, kids forced to play in car parks. I have a 9 month baby and if I want to take him out to play I have to ei­ther drive to the near­est pond park or to the Al Mamzar beach. In the end I don’t know if writ­ing this will help im­prove things but there should be more con­sid­er­a­tion in the plan­ning.
