October 2020

Dubai’s Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) said steady progress was being made on the Dubai Metro Red Line upgradation project work with the Dubai Internet City, Damac Properties, and UAE Exchange stations nearing 40 per cent completion.

The scope of works include the construction of an additional Western entrance at Dubai Internet City station and improving the link between Damac Properties station and Dubai Marina Tram station to cope with the growing number of passengers, especially during peak hours.

An additional Eastern entrance will be built at UAE Exchange station to ease the arrival of passengers at the station, said the RTA.

Civil works will also be undertaken at the Eastern and Western sides of the station’s entrances to improve the integration of transit means and the accessibility of metro stations. The work also includes the construction of pedestrian crossings, shaded rest areas, landscaping and signage, it added.

Mattar Mohammed Al Tayer, the Director-General and Chairman of the Board of RTA Executive Directors, said: “This project is part of a masterplan to improve the infrastructure of 40 metro and marine transport stations by 2025. The plan calls for improving the link between the stations and the surrounding urban and tourist destinations in a radius of 500 m.”
