In an announcement carried by official media, Dubai Municipality director general Hussein Lootah said that AED17m ($4.6m) would be spent on expanding green and recreational areas.

?It comes as a complement to the policy of expanding green areas and in order to distribute them and provide entertainment services in a balanced manner to all areas of the emirate. The contracts have been awarded and the projects are currently in the preparation stage,” Lootah was quoted as saying.
