His Highness the Crown Prince of Ajman hailed the vital project geared towards primarily to ensure the quality of life and happiness of society.

His Highness said that Ajman Corniche is one of the most important areas that attract residents, tourists and investors around the clock, as it is a natural area characterized by elements of attraction and beauty.

His Highness added that Ajman is a city of civilization, beauty, leadership and development and ceaselessly works for sustainable improvement and development, creating perfect natural places for residents and visitors, and upgrading its important landmarks to serve as a destination that attracts individuals, economy and investment.

The MPDA signed the project implementation contract with China Maritime Company. The MPDA’s Acting Director General, Dr. Eng. Mohammed Ahmed bin Omeir Al Muhairi, and China Maritime’s Director General, Mr. Xiang Bang Chin signed on behalf of the two entities.

For his part, Al Muhairi provided a detailed explanation to the Chinese official on the project, noting that the first phase will include the demolition of the current marine structures, including the current rock structures and the pile-supported small pier, in addition to the partial demolition of the rocky protection edge of the current reclaimed land, and the construction of the southern and central rock breakwaters, the northern and bottom barrier, and dredging sand materials about 3 km from the beach to nourish and expand the beach area. The project will include reclaiming and filling the beach with a green area, with a height of up to +3.5 meters above the high water level, Al Muhairi added.
