Hussain Nasser Lootah, Director-General of Dubai Municipality, said that the scope of work of the project will cover all areas of the of Umm Suqeim 1, 2 and 3 beaches, starting from the second fishing harbour at the Burj Al Arab Hotel for a length of approximately 3.5km.

He explained that the project comes as part of the responsibilities of Dubai Municipality for the management of public beaches in the emirate, ensuring the sustainability of the marine and coastal environment, and in line with the Vision 2020 of Dubai to develop the tourism sector which was announced by His Highness the Ruler of Dubai.

Lootah said, “Dubai Municipality will begin implementation of the project as of next week and expects it to be completed by next March. The project consists of constructing five groynes with lengths ranging between 135 and 165 metres and beach replenishment in Umm Suqeim 1. Whereas, in Umm Suqeim 2, stabilisation is achieved by beach replenishment works only. The total volume of beach sand required to accomplish the scheme is approximately 760,000 cubic metres.”

The project will be executed in different stages to avoid completely closing the beaches considering their high recreational use. The public is urged to cooperate with the municipality and the project contractor throughout the stages of partial closures of these beaches, complying with the safety instructions and regulations, and should refrain from entering the work sites for their own safety.
