Rome - Salini Impregilo signed a 435 million dollar contract with Meydan Group LLC for the construction of the Meydan One Mall in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. A communique informed that this Mall will be one of the strong points of Dubai's and the Emirates' tourist offer in view of Expo 2020. The Mall is the cornerstone of an extensive urban development plan, to be implemented between Meydan and Al Khail Road, near the city's centre. The aim is to become a major attraction, when the first stage will be completed, by 2020.

The construction is due to begin in 2017 and will be completed in 23 months. The construction work is the first phase of this unique urban development project, which will include a canal, a marina, pedestrian and cycling areas, and one of the tallest residential buildings in the world. Two underground metro lines have been planned, one of which (the Green Line) will connect the city to Dubai's airport by 2020.

The contract is part of the 1.7 million euros of procurements allocated during the first months of 2017, already released on the market during the the presentation of the preliminary results of the bids in 2016.
