The project also involves drawing distinctive signs on the floor of the walkways and cycling tracks which help sports enthusiasts to know the actual distance travelled or covered.

The project in Mohammed bin Zayed City and Shakhbout City has been implemented in cooperation with a consultant firm, Development of the Middle East and Africa and Injaz National, a contractor.

The initiative aims to encourage community members to work out regularly to maintain good health and fitness and enhance their quality of life.
