Dubai Opens Tunnel for Cyclists to Boost Safety

The Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) has opened a tunnel for bicycle lanes in Meydan, with a total length of 160 meters and a width of 6.6 meters, with a capacity of about 800 bicycles per hour.

The project aimed at improving road safety and cut the emirate's carbon footprint.

The tunnel’s interior design reflects ‎the landscape of plateaus and hills at sunset, and it is equipped with day and night lighting to always ensure clear visibility for cyclists.

The RTA said that the project comes within the framework of its plan to transform Dubai into a bicycle-friendly city, by working to develop the infrastructure of bicycle lanes, and linking them to residential areas and attractions in the emirate.

The RTA aims to increase the total length of cycling tracks in the emirate to 819 kilometer by the end of 2026.
