Phase two of Dubai 2040 Urban Master Plan Approved.
His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum approved phase two of the Dubai 2040 Urban Master Plan.
Phase two of Dubai 2040 Urban Master plan consists of several projects under ten key initiatives.
Among these are the enhancement of Urban Centres, the Urban Farming Plan, and the Development of the 20-Minute City Policy.
His Highness also reviewed the progress of 17 projects and initiatives that were part of the initial phase of the Dubai 2040 Urban Master Plan
Phase two of the Dubai 2040 Urban Master Plan includes a framework for high-yield agriculture by developing the infrastructure and facilities required.
Phase two also outlines plans for preserving urban heritage to enhance the emirate’s identity, promote historical areas, landmarks and buildings, and improve the tourism experience at archaeological sites.
The Dubai 2040 Urban Master Plan also calls for developing a 20-minute city where residents can reach their destinations within a 20-minute timeframe on foot or by bicycle.
The project involves developing integrated service centres with all the necessary facilities allowing residents access to 80% of their daily needs and destinations within 20 minutes.
Additionally, a plan will be developed to enhance and utilise urban spaces.
The initiative contributes to enriching the beauty of urban areas, developing green corridors, reducing the carbon footprint, and enhancing the landscaping strategy.
A comprehensive plan for pedestrians and soft mobility across Dubai will focus on connected pathways in high-density areas.
Phase two of the master plan involves developing an avenue for all residential neighbourhoods.
It entails defining an area within the residential neighbourhoods and developing it under the principle of integrated street network where facilities and services are focused on catering to the residents’ needs.
This initiative enhances well-being, supports soft mobility and reduces travel time within Dubai.
The Dubai 2040 Urban Master Plan, approved by His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum in March 2021, aims to make Dubai the world’s best city for living.
Accordingly, the city’s urban infrastructure is set to be further modernised, with the development focused on five major urban centres.
