Dubai Green Spine project

The Project Includes 1 million trees, solar-powered trams, new parks and farms

URB has unveiled plans for the Dubai Green Spine Project which is expected to see 1 million trees and solar-powered trams alongside the Sheikh Mohammed Bin Zayed Road. The project is a part of the vision to completely transform the Sheikh Mohammed Bin Zayed Road (E311) into an innovative 64-kilometere long sustainable corridor.

Headed by the URB and developed under EPIC lab, its ambitious research arm. This innovative project syncs well with the Dubai 2040 urban masterplan, which further aims to transform urban mobility, enhance environmental and social standards and accommodate Dubai’s expected population growth.

  • The ambitious plan is expected to see:
  • 300 megawatts solar power
  • 1 million new trees
  • Alignment with Dubai 2040 Plan
  • Promotion of non-motorised transport
  • Significantly reduced carbon footprint
  • Enhanced community connectivity
  • New urban farms and gardens
  • CEO of URB, Baharash Bagherian, said: “The Dubai Green Spine isn’t just about transit; it’s about transforming how cities function, making them more liveable and human-centric.

“This initiative exemplifies how integrated, thoughtful urban planning can drastically improve city life, turning everyday environments into vibrant ecosystems that nurture both people and the planet.”

At the heart of the Dubai Green Spine are 100 per cent solar-powered trams, supported by a substantial 300-megawatt solar energy system. These developments in Dubai ensure that daily facilities are within a convenient reach, fostering a dynamic urban life.

This transformative and innovative initiative not only redefines urban mobility but also improves urban life, setting a new global standard for sustainable urban mobility and living, and making a way for future cities.
