The Roads and Transport Authority RTA has completed phase II of the Jumeirah Corniche Development project spanning 2.5 km such that the beach side open to the public now extends to 4.5 km. Accordingly the completion rate has shot up to 77% in the project which is penciled for final opening next October.
Engineer Maitha bin Udai, CEO of RTA Traffic and Roads Agency, said: “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.
“The Jumeirah Corniche Development project extends about 7 km and the project encompasses a 5-meter wide walk, 4-meter wide jogging track, and rest areas including retail kiosks, shaded benches overlooking the beach as well as public & health amenities. The project is characterized by a unique touch of beauty featuring gorgeous landscaping and flooring works; which are distributed in highly coordinated style in addition to decorative lighting in a stylish and innovative manner.
The Jumeirah Corniche Project will turn the sand beach into a vibrant venue fitted with abundant public utilities for beachgoers amongst residents and tourists heading to the beaches of Dubai to savour a fine seaside sitting or practicing jogging or walking sports. More info
