    Dubai Metro 2020

    The Project, carried out by the Expolink construction consortium (Alstom, ACCIONA and Gulemark), consists of a 15km-long line, of which 11.8km is above ground and 3.2km 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 3.2km of tunnel drilled by a tunnel boring machine, a 1.2km open section and nearly 11.8km 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.
