Ajman marina project completed

The marina, covering 1,530 metres, will include walking and jogging tracks and restaurants.
The Dh100 million Ajman Marina project is completed, Yahya Ibrahim Al Reyaysa, director general of the Department of Municipality and Planning in Ajman announced.

In an interview with Al Ittihad, the Arabic language sister paper of The National, Mr Al Reyasa said the marina was on the loveliest beach in the Arabian Gulf.

It had been designed to cover 1,530 metres, Mr Al Reyaysa said, noting that work was still ongoing on services and facilities, including tracks for walking, jogging, cycling and skating, as well as parking lots, restaurants and recreational areas.

Mr Al Reyaysa noted that Al Nuaimiyah Bridge and Mushairif Bridge were due to open next week as part of a plan to meet the needs of the population and improve the emirate’s lifestyle.

He said that the department’s plan was in line with the strategic plan of Ajman government to provide a sustainable environment and modern infrastructure.

Also as part of this year’s budget, there is a plan to pave the roads, especially in Al Nuaimiyah.

The department was making efforts to develop streets that are close to tourist facilities downtown with a view to improve the aesthetic look of the city. A number of projects had been done near Ajman Corniche and some buildings on the Corniche and Al Zawra area had been razed to make way for new hotels there – the Ajman Palace, Fairmont and Al Zawra City – and the roads leading to them.

The emirate was capable of global competition thanks to its urban development that combined modernity and authenticity, Mr Al Reyaysa said. Ajman’s heritage area was under development and ten developmental plans would be carried out there, including Saleh Market project and a project to revamp the old city.
