Metro on track with train delivery

Dubai's celebrated Metro project is continuing apace with the delivery of four new trains to service the Green Line.

Speaking to Emirates Business, Adnan Al Hammadi, director of rail projects construction at the Road and Transport Authority (RTA), added that the group has commissioned a study to update and develop the next two train lines in pursuance of its Rail Transit Master Plan.

"The RTA is also conducting studies, which will detail plans to connect various proposed monorails with the Metro through climate controlled walkways and travellators. The details will be revealed shortly," Mr Al Hammadi stated.

Construction of all 47 stations is currently underway, with around 55 per cent of work on the Green Line completed, while the track and power rails have been installed on the Red Line.

The Metro is expected to make travel in the emirate easier and more efficient for those who own property in Dubai, while sales of commercial property in Dubai is also likely to receive a boost from the improved transport routes.ADNFCR-2019-ID-19112578-ADNFCR
