Dubai's New Cycling Tracks Nearly Ready, Set to Open Soon

On Sunday, the Dubai Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) reported that they have finished 90% of the construction of cycling tracks in Al Khawaneej and Mushrif.

According to the authority, the newly finished 7-kilometer segment links up with the current cycling pathways that span 32 kilometers in these two areas, taking the total length of cycling tracks in both districts to 39km.

Mattar Al Tayer, the Director General and Chairman of the Board of Executive Directors of RTA, stated that in alignment with the directives of Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai and Chairman of the Executive Council, to transform Dubai into a bicycle-friendly city, RTA has recently granted a contract for the construction of cycling tracks in the Al Khawaneej and Mushrif areas.

The project's objective is to offer suitable cycling choices in line with the Dubai Urban Plan 2040, which seeks to transform Dubai into the world's most desirable city for residents.

“The project is part of RTA’s Master Plan for Jogging and Cycling Tracks across Dubai aimed to encourage residents and visitors to practice sports and recreational activities, and thus enhance the wellbeing of people in the emirate. The project affirms RTA’s commitment to improving the link between the existing cycling tracks at residential areas as well as the points of attraction in the neighborhoud,” he added.
