Ajman working on fresh projects to woo tourists and investors


The Ajman municipality has undertaken several projects to improve infrastructure in the emirate and draw investors and tourists into the emirate.

There has been increased demand in Ajman for licenses to begin industrial, commercial and entertainment businesses, revealed Shaikh Rashid bin Humaid Al Nuaimi, the Chairman of Ajman Department of Municipality and Planning.

The civic body is speeding up work on various road projects to improve traffic movement. The roads would be made up to the best international standards. The Municipality has completed construction of Shaikh Jaber Al Sabah Road, Al Nuaimia Main Road and College Street, and several internal streets have been paved and made two-way. Several other parking lots have been constructed, and street lighting and drainage worth Dh.29mn have been installed.

The Municipality is now working on the possibility of road improvements in Al Muwyhat and Al Zahra localities, wherein the streets would be paved for two-way traffic.

The project may cost Dh.16mn, including street lighting for safety of residents. The Municipality has also finalized designs for development of Al Rameelah, Al Nakheel and Al Bustan areas. Work is underway to revive heritage tourism by constructing Salih Souq, by reviving old city areas and improving Ajman Museum.

The Municipality is also working on a proper drainage system in areas like Al Nuaimia. The project includes drains to take rainwater to sea. It covers an area of 303 hectares, including a section of Al Ittihad Road in Al Nuaimia area.

The most important achievement during first quarter of the year was the completion of development of Ajman Corniche and the beach, Shaikh Rashid said.

The Municipality has re-organized the city areas by implementing a new system of numbering all roads and streets in the emirate.
