Work on the extensive, multi-phase North Jeddah Corniche project, which is being implemented at a cost of $213m (SR800m), is in full swing with nearly 80% of the development already completed, according to a local newspaper report.

Of the six-phase beautification and renovation project in Saudi Arabia's commercial city on the Red Sea coast, three have already been completed while the fourth and fifth phases are under various stages of construction, said Saudi Gazette, citing Dr Hani Abu Ras, the Jeddah city mayor.

The sixth phase, which will be carried out in the future, extends from Jubeir Bin Al-Harith Street to Al-Rahma Mosque in the north, revealed Dr Abu Ras.

The project, which boasts a green area spread over 27.5ha, features 12 fountains, water sports parks besides parking for 1,600 vehicles with control, monitoring and warning systems and 96 surveillance cameras, stated the mayor.

"There are 100 rest rooms, 17 recreational open spaces spread out over this area with an accommodation capacity of 54,000 people," observed Dr Abu Ras.

"There are canopies, games for children, and other recreational areas. Some 12 art pieces by Saudi artists have been installed at various places," he added.
