Dubai Expo 2020 site work to peak in 2018 and early 2019

Posted on 10th April 2017

Work at the Dubai Expo 2020 site will peak in 2018 and early 2019 with an estimated 43,000 workers, an official told Arabian Business. Construction work at the 438-hectare site is reminiscent of Dubai’s pre-2008 property boom period, when hundreds of construction cranes were visible across the emirate’s upcoming mega developments. Despite the high-level of construction activity, the Expo 2020 team will retain a 75-year solitary ghaf tree at the huge site in Jebel Ali – which stands few metres higher than the ground level. Eighty percent of the Expo site will be repurposed following the trade fair, which Dubai hopes will attract 25 million visitors during its run from October 2020 to April 2021.
