Another day of work on Dubai Canal, another picture worth a thousand words.

Made up of 80 water pumps, the waterfall can actually be ‘switched off’ when boats travelling on the canal approach, thanks to a sensor that picks up their proximity.

It was only last week that water was released in the Dubai Water Canal for the first time, the most significant development in a three-year project that’s seen three new bridges open and a path dug from Business Bay to the Arabian Gulf. More info and photos
