Pedways to link major buildings in Dubai

Pedway

Government of Dubai is now planning to build climate controlled pedways to link major buildings to promote a walking culture. Thse pedways will link major buildings, shopping centres, Metro stations and bus stations.

According to the RTA’s statistics, 49 pedestrians were killed on Dubai’s roads in 2001 and in 2007 the figure was 145. However, the number of pedestrians killed in 2008 was down to 106 as more pedestrian bridges were built and the traffic rules strictly enforced.

The majority of the pedways in the congested parts of the city and commercial areas will be air-conditioned.
