Phase B of the Jumeirah Golf Estates, a Dh40 billion (US$10.8bn) golf community under development by Leisurecorp in Dubai, will be redesigned as the company overcomes a new road and transport network plan drawn up by the Dubai Roads and Transport Authority close to the project.

One of three environmentally-themed phases, Phase B was originally designed in 2004 and is made up of villas, cottages and medium-rise apartment buildings surrounding the Water golf course, designed by the Fijian professional golfer Vijay Singh.
