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 and the UAE.
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, it said in a statement.
The first phase of the project will include the development of bike and jogging paths alongside the city’s popular Al Majaz Waterfront.
“The cycling and jogging track project is considered one of the most fundamental developments found in advanced cities around the world as it embodies the essential concept of sustainability,”said Sheikh Khalid bin Sultan Al Qasimi, chairman of SUPC.
“It is also closely associated with the developmental drive in the economic, tourism and social sectors in addition to its positive impact on enhancing quality of life, ensuring healthy lives and promoting well-being for all segments of society.”
The project is part of the vision of Dr Sheikh Sultan bin Mohammed Al Qasimi, Supreme Council Member and Ruler of Sharjah.
