Dubai’s Roads & Transport Authority (RTA) announced that work on the new Metro Blue Line will begin soon
Time for a new metro line in Dubai?
In the wake of massive traffic on Dubai roads, the sound of Dubai’s new Metro Blue Line comes as more than welcome news to commuters. And the rumours are all true – we’re getting a massive new upgrade!
Dubai’s Roads & Transport Authority (RTA) has announced that work will soon begin on this new construction, spanning 30km in length. The line will be operational by 2029.
Joining the Red and Green Lines, at least 15.5km of the Dubai Metro Blue Line will run underground. As of now, there will reportedly be 14 stations, of which at least five will be underground.
Dubai Metro’s largest underground station (44,000 square-metres) is set to be built in the International City area.
There will be three key interchange stations – The Creek, Centrepoint, and International City 1 Stations – along with an iconic station at Dubai Creek Harbour.
It’s also the first transport project compatible with Green Buildings specifications (Platinum category).
Recently, a map began doing the rounds online, with 14 potential stations located at Muhaisnah, International City, The Villa and Damac Hills.
With the Red and Green lines expansions well underway, plus several road works to alleviate traffic on Hessa Street planned, one can hope that the round-the-clock traffic in suburban parts of Dubai, as well as the main highways, might end soon!
