The new Dubai Cycling Track is set to be opened later this year, with the Road and Traffic Authority (RTA) reporting that more than 70 percent of the project has now been completed.

According to Gulf News, the track is due to open in October. The paper said that construction work is being stepped up to finish the  portion of track at Seih Assalam to Nad Al Sheba in order to link the new 23-kilometre stretch of track to existing cycling tracks across Dubai.

Once finished, the total length of cycling tracks in Dubai will reach 178km.

Mattar Al Tayer, Director-General and Chairman of the Board of Executive Directors of RTA, said: “The cycling path at Seih Assalam includes the gate of the Dubai Cycling Track, several public utilities, outlets for renting bikes and accessories, a fully equipped medical clinic, and 10 rest points all along the biking lane fitted with seats and racks.”
