Dubai's Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) has carried out extensive sidewalk maintenance works across the emirate.

The project covered sidewalks spanning more than 80,000 square metres in residential, tourist, commercial and coastal areas.

The maintenance works focused on several types of sidewalks for pedestrians, crosswalks, service roads and combined use (pedestrians and cyclists).

It also covered sidewalks that had suffered from erosion, damage or the loss of tiles due to improper use or environmental impact.

"The project ensures the structural conditions of road assets and the highest safety of road users —a top priority for the RTA, given the rapid urban expansion and development seen by the emirate," said Hussein Al Banna, CEO of the RTA's Traffic and Roads Agency.

Al Banna added that the RTA intends to raise the scope of its preventive maintenance work on sidewalks across the city by at least 10 per cent for 2024, compared to the previous year.

The plan covers sidewalk maintenance works at Al Wuheida, Al Khabisi, Al Twar 2, Al Sufouh 1, 2nd December Street and the cycling track on Jumeirah Street.

Maintenance works will also be carried out on sidewalks on Al Rigga and Al Muraqqabat roads, cycling tracks in Dubai Marina, intersections along Jumeirah Street, and the service sidewalks on Sheikh Zayed Road.
