The first zone of the first phase of Al Wakrah Beach Development Project will be opened to the public on May 15, Al Wakrah Municipality's technical affairs manager Abdul Aziz al-Mansoori announced on Wednesday.
The first phase consists of three zones.
The initiative is part of an integrated plan by Ashghal for the development of the Corniche areas in Doha City, Al Wakrah City, Al Khor and Al Shamal.
Ashghal is developing Al Wakrah beach, covering an area of 335,000sqm, as a leisure destination for families.
Al Wakrah Municipality's Buildings Project Management Department engineer Khalid Abdulla al-Najjar said the 2,100m long interlocking for the pedestrian walkways has been completed and the stretch provides shaded areas for families.
Currently, all the pergolas for Zone 1 are installed.
The project also includes three green areas covering 25,000sqm, in addition to 98 solar light poles along the beach to reduce electricity consumption.
The 2,500m long metal fence along the beach will be built with three entrances.
The remaining works in the project will be completed by July and it includes 12 buildings for public toilets distributed among the three beach areas, and three equipped buildings to be used as a cafeteria in the future as well as three guard rooms.
The project, launched in October last year, also includes 600 parking spaces on an area of 20,000sqm.
