DUBAI – The ruler of Dubai has approved a project to develop 12 kilometres of Dubai’s beaches spanning an area of one million square metres.
“We are pressing ahead with developing our city, improving the quality of our lives and making the future of the UAE,” said Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President, Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai, while announcing the project on Saturday (October 31), part of 29 multi-billion development projects in the emirate.
Sheikh Mohammed said the beach development project will give Dubai a huge beachfront spanning Al Mamzar Beach to Umm Suqeim 2.
The project will be implemented in three phases — the first covers 4,250 metres of beachfront from Al Mamzar Creek beach to Al Mamzar Corniche, the second covers 2,150 metres of beachfront from Jumeirah Beach to Al Shorouq. The third phase covers 6,015 metres of beachfront in Umm Suqeim 1 and 2.
“We will develop more swimming areas, better running paths and longer bicycle streets. The quality of life in Dubai is the secret of loving life in the Emirate,” Sheikh Mohammed added.
The Dubai ruler approved a total of 29 development projects worth Dh2 billion to add 8 million square meters of green spaces and parks to Dubai’s residential and commercial areas.
Sheikh Mohammed also announced a Dh4 billion project to build the Dubai Centre for Waste Processing in Warsan area. The plant can accommodate 1,000 garbage trucks per day and will generates enough energy to power 135,000 homes.
The first phase of the project will be completed in 2023 and the entire project will be completed in 2024.
The Ras Al Khor Wildlife Sanctuary will also get a Dh100 million boost to increase its wetlands by 20 hectares and expand its greenery with a 100-hectare mangrove area. Service facilities and entertainment amenities will also be built as part of the project.
