Dubai’s Sheikh Zayed Road has a new attraction – a cascading waterfall along the new canal which links the city’s Creek with the sea and effectively turns the Downtown area into an island.

The waterfall is situated beside the W Hotel, The St. Regis and Westin in Al Habtoor City.

It is powered by 80 water pumps and was designed by a company called Magical Water Fountains.

It is sensor controlled, so it can switch off when boats want to pass through.

When finally completed the canal project will see the entire waterway lined with retail and restaurants, parks, accommodation, greenery, seating areas and environmentally friendly lighting.

Water was first released last week as part of a test run into the 3km canal, expected to be 6m deep once full around mid-November.
