SHARJAH 18 June 2017: The Sharjah Urban Planning Council (SUPC), has launched the Sharjah Waterfront Bicycling and Jogging Path project which will serve as the foundation of a multi-phase network of paths stretching across the city.
The project is in line with SUPC’s plans to enhance the quality of life in the emirate by giving residents and visitors alike new healthy transportation and entertainment options in line with the best international standards.
The overall waterfront project will see the development of a continuous series of bicycle and jogging paths along the waterfront from Ajman to Dubai. The first phase of this ambitious project will include the development of bike and jogging paths alongside the city’s popular Al Majaz Waterfront.
In order to move the project forward, the SUPC organised a workshop to explain the objectives and vision behind the project and to get input and feedback from stakeholder agencies. The workshop was attended by representatives of a number of state departments and authorities including the Sharjah Sport Council, Sharjah Investment and Development Authority, Shurooq, Roads and Transport Authority, The Directorate of Town Planning and Survey, Sharjah Ladies Club, Department of Public Works, and Sharjah Commerce and Tourism Development Department.
The workshop reviewed different phases of the projects, the alignment of the paths, the proposed family amenities adjacent to the project, materials and other relevant topics. Additionally, the responsibilities of each department and authority concerned were clarified in order to move this project forward.
