Dubai Metro, turns six today.
Since its launch in 2009, the Dubai Metro has become a pivotal mode of transport for residents. Inexpensive, clean and efficient, the Metro has been a great success story.
With passenger traffic on red and green lines increasing exponentially in the last six years, some complaints are trickling in about congestion.
Users are now seeking new Metro routes and even inter-Emirate Metro lines. Route 2020 is the most anticipated addition to Dubai's infrastructural landscape. Route 2020 will branch off from the red line at Nakheel Harbour and Towers, heading towards Shaikh Mohammed bin Zayed Road. It will pass through communities such as the Gardens, Discovery Gardens and Furjan.
