The Dubai Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) has announced that work is gathering pace at Jumeirah Corniche Project with 55 per cent of the work already completed.
Mattar Al Tayer, the chairman of the board and executive director at RTA, said the project, which extends 14 km from the beach parallel to six residential units starting from the back yard of the Dubai Marine Beach Resort up to Burj Al Arab Hotel, is progressing smoothly and is on track for completion next October.
Measuring two km in length, the initial phase of the project will be opened during Ramadan, he stated
“The Jumeirah Corniche project will be a beautiful addition offering rest and relaxation facilities for the public to enjoy and practice a variety of activities, and top class care to all visitors including citizens, residents and tourists heading towards the Corniche for relaxation, swimming or practicing sport,” remarked Al Tayer.
"Besides offering a value-added aesthetic and comfortable relaxation destination, the project commands special importance as it contributes to the improvement of the social infrastructure in the emirate, particularly as regards the quality of the public health of the community in terms of providing wider opportunities for practicing jogging & walking sports as well as a host of water sports such as swimming and rowing among others," he stated.
Last February the contractor started work at the project which includes the construction of a 5 meter-wide walk, 4 meter-wide jogging track, rest areas including retail kiosks & shaded benches overlooking the beach in addition to health & public realms.
The project will have a distinctive landscaping theme featuring well designed and positioned flora, and decorative lighting characterized by stylish & creative design,” he added.
Al Tayer said the project is aimed at converting the sand beach into a more vibrant facility through providing aesthetic, recreational elements as well as public services for the visiting tourists and residents heading to Dubai beaches to enjoy seaside sitting or practicing jogging & walking sports.
“Dubai city is the favourite tourist destination for multitude of nationalities particularly during vacations and public holidays. This prompted the drive to construct tourist projects offering fun to visitors, and bear reference to the global standing of Dubai in creative designs and innovation,” he added.-TradeArabia News Service
