A 15km urban transit system that would transport passengers along Dubai's skyscrapers was among the several developmental projects approved on Tuesday (April 30). The 'happiness projects' aim to transform Dubai into the world's best city, according to His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai.
The 'SkyWay' project is a suspended transit system that would link vital spots such as the Dubai Financial Centre, Downtown and Business Bay through 21 stations. Passing through the Happiness Street and running up to City Walk, the skypods can transport 8,400 riders per hour per direction. The package of future projects, which will be developed by the Roads and Transport Authority, includes a 'Sky Garden', two promenades and a bicycle pool project.
