Marine Transportation Masterplan, Dubai

BMT supported Parsons Brinckerhoff in developing the first marine transport masterplan for Dubai.

The Requirement

The vast number of coastal developments being planned over the next 20 years across the Emirates has created the potential for substantive populations to be linked by marine transport. As such, BMT supported Parsons Brinckerhoff in developing the first marine transport masterplan for Dubai. 

A transport model integrating inland and offshore modes can realise significant efficiencies and benefits.

What We Delivered

In developing the ferry network and pier nodes, it was noted that the phasing of the coastal development and its waterways presented challenges and risks. The study provided:

Outcomes and Benefits

The solution delivered by BMT were three-fold, providing a practical, flexible solution that considers a number of variables and opportunities.
