Al Osaimi added that the RTA has a complete plan to support walking and cycling in Dubai, after their success of public transport development.
And it certainly seems to be working, with notable improvements to pedestrian footpaths in neighbourhoods such as Barsha Heights, Al Sufouh and Dubai Media City, to name a few.
Public transportation reached a whopping 551.7 million rides last year, and RTA wants to expand on the different ways people can get around the city.
International transport expert Brent Toderian told Khaleej Times: "As Dubai's population grows, the challenge is to provide mobility to the people with less space, less public cost and the solution is not to build more roads for cars."
Details on where the tracks will be set up have not yet been revealed. While we wait, Dubai has plenty of lanes to get pedalling on, including Al Qudra’s 86km track.
