Dubai to rename main street in honour Kuwait

Dubai will rename a main street in honour of Kuwait's late Amir Sheikh Sabah Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah on the occasion of Kuwait's 60th National Day, the emirate's press office announced on Thursday.

The decision to rename Al-Mankhool Street was ordered by UAE Vice President and Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, read a Dubai Government statement.

It was taken in "recognition of Sheikh Sabah?’s humanitarian contributions and efforts to promote progress and solidarity in the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) region and among Arab and Islamic nations."

"The Sheikh Sabah Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah Street is one of the main streets in Bur Dubai. It stretches four kilometres from Al Seef Street to the 2nd December Street, which extends from the World Trade Centre Roundabout and passes through the Satwa Roundabout all the way to the Etihad Junction that leads to the Etihad Museum," Dubai Roads and Transport Authority Director-General and Board Chairman Mattar Al-Tayer said.

"The Street is also connected to Kuwait Street, which extends from Zabeel Street to Al Mina Street and passes through Karama, Mankhool and Al Raffa districts.

"The Sheikh Sabah Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah Street features a host of iconic tourist, urban and heritage destinations such as Al Seef, Al Hudhaiba, Al Hamriya, Al Jafiliya, Al Mankhool, Al Raffa and the Grand Souq. The Street is also linked to the historical Al Fahidi district and the Ruler?’s Court overlooking the Dubai Creek," Al-Tayer added.
