Sheikh Hamdan orders construction of 16km cycle path in Dubai

Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed, Crown Prince of Dubai, orders the construction of a new stretch of bicycle track spanning 16 kilometres along the popular Jumeirah Beach.

The new track will connect the existing Jumeirah Street cycling track, parallel to the Dubai Water Canal, with the existing cycling track alongside Dubai Internet City.

“I directed the implementation of a new bicycle path on Jumeirah Beach [which measures] 16km. We have a plan that will add 276km [of tracks], bringing the total length of bicycle paths in Dubai to 739km by 2026. We [want to] provide all [transport] alternatives to make our society healthy and maintain a sustainable environment.” Sheikh Hamdan tweeted.
