RTA Confirms Completion Of Phase II Of Jumeirah Corniche Project

The newly completed phase of the project will be open to public from the third week of September, RTA said.

Dubai’s Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) has announced that it has completed the second phase of the Jumeirah Corniche project.

The project’s second phase of the project will open an additional 2.5 kilometres of the beachside to the public, the RTA said in a statement. Currently around 2.5 kilometres of the shoreline is accessible.

“The newly completed sector of the Corniche will be open for the public as of the third week of this month, and walking and jogging enthusiasts are invited to practice and enjoy their hobbies at the Corniche, particularly as walking is growing into a good healthy practice amongst all community members,” said Maitha bin Udai, CEO of RTA Traffic and Roads Agency.

Completion rate in the project, which is scheduled for a final opening in October 2014, shot up 77 per cent, the statement added.

The Jumeirah Corniche, sanctioned by Dubai’s ruler Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum in October last year, will involve developing the emirate’s longest corniche stretching across 14 kilometres.

The project will be constructed along the beach adjoining six residential districts, and will begin from the area behind Dubai Marine Beach Resort and extend up to Burj Al Arab hotel.

It comprises a five-metre wide walkway, a four-metre wide jogging track, rest-houses fitted with commercial kiosks, shaded benches overlooking the beach, and public and health amenities.

The project’s walkway and the jogging tracks are also set to be linked with the upcoming Dubai Canal project.

Launching the project last year, Sheikh Mohammed said: “We instructed the concerned authorities to increase the number of walking and jogging tracks around the emirate, and we will create and develop more to serve various residential areas in Dubai.

“We hope the people of Dubai will make use of these tracks and practice sports for the best of their bodies and minds.”
