Dubai Municipality is implementing its first group of projects in Hatta to enhance the infrastructure as part of the area’s comprehensive development plan.

The projects include the development of Al Sheraa heritage area, the building of 30 public rest houses, and the construction of a 2km walkway, according to WAM.  

Omar Saeed Al Mutaiwei, head of Hatta Centre at Dubai Municipality, said that the first group of projects will help develop the city’s economic and tourism sectors, while improving Hatta’s competitiveness in the region.

"Al Sheraa project has several phases. The first phase includes the fencing, lighting and paving of the pedestrian pathways to give access to the area’s attractions,” Al Mutaiwei said.

“The project also includes building eight rest houses, a gate, and an information office,” he added.

The project scope includes building 30 environmentally-friendly rest areas to serve visitors and tourists across Hatta.

 

It will also entail the development of multiple pathways linking visitors to tourist attractions like the Hatta Heritage Village, Hatta Kayak, and Hatta Dam.

Launched in 2016, the $354m (AED1.3bn) Hatta Comprehensive Development Plan aims to develop the area’s social and economic attractiveness as a world-class environmental tourist destination in the UAE.
