* A 20-minute city refers to a kind of design that looks at reducing reliance on car by facilitating urban residents to walk or cycle to essential facilities within twenty minutes from their residence. Dubai is encouraging the adoption of this concept. This vision is a part of Dubai 2040 Urban Master Plan.

Dubai is all set for ‘THE LOOP’- a 93-kilometre highway that can control climate. The highway will  connect more than 3 million people.

The initiative looks at promoting walking and cycling. “It will provide an enjoyable climate controlled all-year environment, to make walking & cycling the primary mode of transport for Dubai’s residents, in line with its new 20-minute city initiative. The aim is to make cycling and walking the primary mode of transport for daily commutes for more than 80 percent of Dubai’s residents by 2040,” a statement read from an architecture firm.

A blend of architecture & sustainability

Currently in the R&D phase, THE LOOP will set up smart cycling and walking infrastructure. Some of the most notable features of this project are that it will be 100 percent renewable energy with the help of kinetic power. It will boast of a zero emissions transport system and offer 100 percent recycled water for irrigation. Vertical farming will also be enabled.

Needless to say, The Loop Project is an example of urban mobility as its finest that also brings to the table the idea of sustainability.

Dubai is on a major drive toward accelerating green mobility, circular economy and net zero emissions and infrastructure forms the core of these initiatives for the city made up of cosmopolitan cultures.
