Dubai Municipality has announced the launch of dedicated walkways for the People of Determination and the elderly on public beaches in the emirate.
These special pathways have been built to help them cross the beach and reach the sea easily, reported state news agency Wam.
Engineer Alia Abdul Rahim Al Harmoudi, the director of Environment Department at Dubai Municipality, said: "We have provided these facilities at Al Mamzar Creek Beach, Al Mamzar Corniche Beach, Jumeirah 2 and 3 beaches, Umm Suqeim 1 and 2 beaches."
"They are built meeting international standards in this area, facilitating the movement of wheel chairs, allowing the user to reach the water and enjoy swimming in the sea. The locations were chosen closer to the parking lots assigned to the People of Determination," she added.
