Beach Rehabilitation project nearly complete says Dubai Municipality

The Dubai Municipality carried out extensive works to beautify and protect many of the emirate’s most-visited beaches, it said

Dubai Municipality has announced that its extensive project to revamp the city’s various public beaches will be completed in December of this year.

The Beach Rehabilitation project includes Al Mamzar Corniche, Jumeirah 1 and Jumeirah 3 beaches, in addition to the expansion work to increase the area of the Umm Suqeim 1 beach, according to Dubai Municipality.

The scope of work includes covering the beaches with additional beach sand and carrying out breakwater and other works to protect public beaches from erosion due to strong waves, providing the safest possible beach conditions.

In March 2022, Dubai Municipality said that the Dubai Waste Management Centre was 60% complete while, in June 2022, the municipality launched several technical activities around 3D printing technology.

The initiatives have been in operation for the last 18 months and are now entering the final phase of work, having significantly enhanced the profiles of 12 of Dubai’s most popular beaches, from as far afield as Burj Al Arab to the borders of Sharjah.

Dawoud Al Hajri, Director General of Dubai Municipality said: “The project aims to develop and beautify Dubai’s beaches, which are among the emirate’s most significant tourist attractions. The municipality seeks to take care of all its facilities in the emirate, especially the beaches, as they are important tourist attractions. This is also part of its efforts to preserve the aesthetic and elegant appearance of Dubai’s facilities.”

In September 2022, Dubai Municipality said it had completed 85% of construction work on the world’s largest waste-to-energy plant.
