Dubai went all out for Halloween 2023 with a mesmerizing drone show near the iconic Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest building. On October 31, the city of Dubai in the United Arab Emirates treated residents and visitors to a spectacular display in celebration of the spooky season.

Halloween, traditionally observed on October 31, precedes All Saints’ or All Hallows’ Day and is primarily celebrated in Europe and North America. This secular festival prompts people to don costumes inspired by their favorite film, TV, or comic book characters, and attend festive gatherings featuring spooky elements like ghosts, skeletons, witches, and vampires.

Dubai’s Halloween Eve event was orchestrated by the Geoscan Group, a Russian company specializing in unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) and related software for photogrammetric data processing and 3D visualization.

A viral video shared by Bucket Listers on November 1, 2023, showcased the drone show, featuring drones cleverly designed as a skeleton that appeared to cling to the Burj Khalifa.

This captivating display also made waves on the microblogging platform X (formerly Twitter). This event stands as a testament to Dubai’s dynamic embrace of global celebrations, reflecting a broader trend of cultural openness and a willingness to integrate diverse traditions.

BCA drops the ultimate hammer; “No License, No Construction”

Nov 1 2023 Share

The Building and Construction Authority (BCA) has dropped the ultimate hammer, declaring a ‘No License, No Construction’ rule that promises to revolutionise the industry.

The BCA has received 3,500 applications from contractors in the fields of demolition, excavation, and construction.

As of today, only those who had the foresight to apply for a license before the deadline can continue their work.

This groundbreaking process was set in motion by a Legal Notice, which, for the first time, mandates that contractors in every phase of construction, be it demolition, excavation, or building, must have an official license.

Contractors who missed the October 31st deadline need not despair just yet; they have a lifeline until May 31, 2024, to submit their applications. However, it’s not all smooth sailing. The evaluation committee has the power to hold applicants in suspense for up to 60 days, provided all documents are in order.

By January 1, 2025, everyone in the game needs to have a license or they won’t be able to operate.

BCA claims that this rigorous licensing system is designed to separate the wheat from the chaff, ensuring only the most serious and responsible contractors remain in business.

Avoid St Andrew’s Road, Swieqi Due To Road Works

Avoid St Andrew's Road, Swieqi Due To Road Works
Nov 1 2023 Share

Infrastructure Malta is advising commuters to steer clear of St Andrew Road, situated between Pembroke and Swieqi, in the upcoming months due to extensive infrastructure works scheduled until February of the following year. 

Two “hairpin” turns near the Luxol football ground are being constructed to alleviate traffic congestion from Swieqi.

These hairpin turns will replace the existing traffic lights, with the addition of a pedestrian crossing on the road. This alteration will also provide drivers with a more direct route, eliminating the need to travel to the end of the road to make a turn.

As the project advances, traffic is being redirected through an alternative route via Pembroke. To address existing and potential traffic concerns during this period, Falzon urged the public to explore alternative routes, including those in Burmarrad and it-Telgha t’ Alla u Ommu.
