Metro well advanced
Dubai’s new Metro train system is well on target according to the RTA’s Rail Agency and that seems to be true with what’s visible.
The overland stretch along Sheikh Zayed Road out to the Abu Dhabi border is really starting to take shape now, with several huge machines putting the concrete base for the tracks in place.

More than 40% of the Red Line is complete and the trains, which are being manufactured in Japan, are due for delivery starting in March. The Red Line is still on schedule to begin operating on September 9 2009.
The frustrated drivers in Dubai can’t wait! We’re hoping it will relieve some of the terrible traffic jams.
