Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai and Chairman of the Emirate Executive Committee, has ordered the construction of a 16km orbit around Jumeirah.
The new route will connect the Jumeirah Route, which runs parallel to the Dubai Canal, to the King Salman Bin Abdul Aziz Al Saud Street in Dubai Internet City.
Emirates plans to add a total of 276 km of orbit to reach a total of 739 km by the end of 2026.
In addition, the Director General of the Dubai Roads and Transport Authority (RDA) clarified, “The construction of this roundabout is part of our efforts to realize the vision of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and the Emir of Dubai, residents and citizens. To improve the quality of life and make them happy. This is a step towards a more sustainable movement. “
As a reminder, on dedicated cycle paths, cyclists can travel at 30 km / h as opposed to 20 km / h if traveling on an urban road or sharing with pedestrians.
