The Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) confirmed that the facelift of Jumeirah beach will be completed by November 2014. The 14-kilometre Jumeirah Corniche project, which was set in motion in 2013, will render Dubai’s longest stretch of beach.
The area of construction extends from Jumeirah Mosque all the way to Burj Al Arab. Even though it already boasts several open beaches, the new corniche will include a five-metre walkway, as well as extended jogging and cycling tracks. It is expected to become a social and sports hub, according to the RTA. Further improvements will include the addition of changing room facilities and kiosks on some of the beaches along the stretch.
The AED100 million project will benefit from the six residential districts that fall in line with the upgraded area between the Dubai Marine Beach Resort and Burj Al Arab.
Beach-goers can enjoy a multitude of activities, such as swimming and rowing. According to media reports, the RTA also plans on delivering decorative and innovative designs in terms of lighting and landscaping.
