Dubai to spend $10.9m on new cycling tracks

Dubai's Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) has unveiled plans to build new cycling tracks across 11 locations in the city, stretching 52km at a cost of Dhs40m ($10.89m), Gulf News has reported. "The construction of the cycling tracks is part of a master plan developed by RTA to provide dedicated cycling spaces across the entire Dubai emirate in a bid to encourage the use of bikes as an environment-friendly transit means, as well as for the benefit of cycling enthusiasts," said Mattar Al Tayer, chairman and executive director of the RTA. The authority is currently constructing a 4.5-km-long track in the central district of Bur Dubai, and has completed the designs of four tracks linking Jumeirah Road with four Metro stations on Sheikh Zayed Road. Work on the new cycling tracks will begin this year and will be completed by 2016.
