Dubai's transport authority said on Saturday that it has completed work on phase two of the Jumeirah Corniche Development project.

The Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) said in a statement that phase two spans 2.5km and means that a total of 4.5km of beachfront is now open to the public.

It added that the final phase of the project is pencilled in for completion in October.

The project comprises the construction of a five-metre wide walkway, a four-metre wide jogging track, rest areas including retail kiosks and shaded benches overlooking the beach.

Maitha bin Udai, CEO of RTA Traffic and Roads Agency, said: "The newly completed sector of the Corniche will be open for the public as of the third week of this month, and walking and jogging enthusiasts are invited to practice and enjoy their hobbies at the Corniche, particularly as walking is growing into a good healthy practice amongst all community members."

The project spans six residential beachfront communities in Dubai.

Known as the Jumeirah Corniche Development Project, the corniche will be the longest in the emirate and will link with the $545m Dubai Canal Project.
