Mapping Fujairah's Development

I have written earlier about the paucity of good Fujairah maps and the challenge of mapping a city that is sprouting streets so rapidly.

This isn’t the best or newest map of Fujairah but I am posting it to indicate the area where the Fujairah building boom (see this link for the beginning of my Fujairah Building Boom series) is really taking off.

The Kuwait Road has recently been broadened into a major highway and where you see commencing a major network of streets (right and left), heading east towards the beach, there are an amazing number of buildings under construction.

I will place photos of some of these buildings in the next couple of postings.
