2.5 km bicycling lane in the works
If you’ve passed by the World Trade Centre and Financial Centre metro stations, chances are you’ve noticed the mural arts on its pillars. The area under the viaduct between the two metro stations will soon be transformed into a 2.5 km-long modern green space, including walkways and a bicycling lane. The walkways will include three thematic streets: a Bazaar Street, Technology Park and Urban Park, spanning an area of 54,000 square metres.

One of the upcoming promenades is the ‘Sunset Promenade,’ a new beachfront spot spanning 80,000 square metres connected to Jumeirah Beach Walk. Plus, the concept of the floating island was announced, which is estimated to increase the city’s total beach area by 107,000 square metres. Check it out:
