With this latest announcement, the RTA has awarded a contract for the implementation of 7 kilometres of cycle lanes in Al Khawaneej and Mishref. These lanes will connect to the existing cycle paths and will increase the network of cycle lanes in these regions to 39 kilometres.

His Excellency Mattar Al Tayer, Director General and Chairman of the Board of Directors of the Roads and Transport Authority, said:

“The implementation of the project comes within the framework of a comprehensive plan developed by the authority to provide special tracks for jogging and bicycles covering all areas of the Emirate of Dubai, with the aim of encouraging residents and visitors to practice sports and recreational activities to improve the quality of life in Dubai, and it also comes within the framework of the authority's keenness to enhance the link between existing bicycle paths in residential areas, and link with the attractions in the region.”

By 2026, an additional 278 kilometres of cycle lanes will bring the total length of the network in Dubai up to 819 kilometres. This will connect coastal areas such as Jumeirah, Al Sufouh and Marina areas with paths in Al Qudra, Seih Al Salam and Nad Al Sheba, passing through the areas of Al Barsha, Dubai Hills and Nad Al Sheba.
