    Dubai Metro 2020

    Design and construction of the extension of the Dubai Metro Red Line from the Nakheel Harbour Station to the upcoming Expo 2020.

    The Project, carried out by the Expolink construction consortium (Alstom, ACCIONA and Gulemark), consists of a 15km-long line, of which 11.8 km is above ground and 3.2 km underground, and an interchange on the Red Line at Nakheel Harbour and Tower. The extension of the metro will have seven stations including the Nakheel Harbour interchange and the flagship metro station at the Expo exhibition site. It is a project of great technical complexity, including 3.2 km of tunnel drilled by a tunnel boring machine, a 1.2 km open section and nearly 11.8 km of elevated track.

    Out of respect for the environment, the train is equipped with a full electric braking system, LED lighting and other innovations to reduce energy consumption.
