Dubai: Jumeirah Corniche opens for public on Sunday as work on phase two of the 14km long beachfront completes, the Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) has announced.

Phase one of the project — a 2km long stretch from Dubai Sailing Club to Dubai Municipality’s Umm Suqueim Centre — opened in July.

Launched by His Highness Shaikh Mohammad Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minster of UAE and Ruler of Dubai, work on the Dh100 million project began last year.

Overlooking six residential neighbourhoods, the project gives a complete facelift to the 14km long stretch from Dubai Marine Beach Resort up to Burj Al Arab Hotel, making it a hub of healthy lifestyle in the emirate. More info
