United Development Company (UDC), the master developer of The Pearl and Gewan islands, announced that nearly 90 million vehicles entered The Pearl Island since 2016.

The number of vehicles is tracked through technologically advanced monitoring devices installed at the entrance of The Pearl Island. These devices registered an average 12% annual increase of vehicle influx over the past 6 years, covering visitors, tourists, residents, and employees.

According to 2021 figures, this constitutes an increase of 77 percent compared to vehicle influx in 2016, while UDC is expecting to receive a significant 19 million vehicles by end of 2022 based on traffic data collected thus far.

The latest traffic data showed that January till May 2022 alone, recorded 8 million vehicle entries to The Pearl Island, compared to full-year figures of 9 million vehicles in 2016.

Numbers are still expected to increase even more in the second half of 2022, with an even more promising ending by Q4 following the much-awaited FIFA 2022 World Cup.

The significant increase in resident and visitor influx to the Island has also contributed to an increase in retail activity, evidenced by the subsequent rise in the demand for leasing of shops and restaurants where 360 varied retail and F&B brands are currently operational across the three main retail hubs in Porto Arabia, Medina Centrale and Qanat Quartier.
