Change is coming to Mirdiff. It’s about time.


May 24, 2009 4:40 by

Some days you’ll get wafts of sewage from a plant nearby, other days the people get run over and killed by erratic drivers at poorly designed roundabouts, Mirdiff is Dubai’s neglected neighborhood.

But we know it’s forgotten, not only because Majid Al Futtaim’s new City Centre is located in Mirdiff, but also because a cop camps out there every morning and night with his portable speed camera catching the neighborhood’s angry residents going 80 kilometers per hour on a street that should’ve had a higher speed limit (but that’s another story).

Anyway, the story here is that new bridges will be built in Mirdiff to accommodate the new mall. This is exciting news for residents in the area, because the truth is nothing changes in Mirdiff, aside from the planes and the smell of sewage. Nothing.

It appears Kipp is having a rant. And why not? Why can’t we rant about Mirdiff? How many more nights will we need to gag on the smell of concentrated poo before someone in Dubai’s government wakes up and says “Wow, that stinks. And I don’t think it’s healthy. Shut down the plant.”
