One thing that struck me upon returning to Fujairah after a summer break was the massive building boom that is going on in Al Fujairah at the moment.
I plan over the next few postings to display some of the constructions that are going up.
When you approach Fujairah from the Dubai road the first cluster of buildings that you see are on the left side of the road—Ajman University, Higher College of Technology (Men’s College), Institute of Applied Technology and the Ministry of the Environment (Agricultural Department for the Eastern Region).
Passing this cluster as you come to the first set of traffic lights, on the left you will notice (set back from the road) a new hospital. It is called the NMC Al Fujairah Hospital and it is one of the chain of NMC Medical Centres and hospitals springing up throughout the UAE.
This building is a sign of the city’s population growth and the improvement in infrastructure and health services that is taking place in the region.
