A heritage village and jogging track have been approved by Sharjah’s Ruler, Dr Sheikh Sultan bin Mohammed Al Qasimi.
The village, in Al Hamriyah, will consist of 28 heritage and 28 commercial shops, areas for men and women to pray, a traditional coffee shop, and a zoo that will house animals indigenous to the region.
Upgrades to the beach will cost Dh10 million and will include a 1,300 metre-long and 3m wide rubber-floored track for jogging, the state news agency Wam reported. Toilets, showers, a cafe and 60 lampposts are also to be added.
The work will be carried out by Sharjah Directorate of Public Works.
