In a bid to be more connected and emerge as a bicycle-friendly hub, there will be new speed limits and tracks put in place.
Currently, this 7km stretch connects with the existing cycling tracks extending 32km in the two areas, and as such the total length of cycling tracks in both districts reaches 39km.
The first track runs from the Quranic Garden on Sheikh Zayed bin Hamdan Al Nahyan Street up to the intersection with Al Khawaneej Street.
