Dubai: At least 16 trains of the Dubai Metro have clocked more than 600,000 kilometres and are up for a major maintenance overhaul that will see all the underlying parts of the trains completely dismantled and serviced.

Gulf News got an exclusive access to the Al Ghusais Depot, the biggest of the three depots that are dedicated for the maintenance of Dubai Metro trains.

The fully air-conditioned depot, located near the Etisalat Metro station on the Green Line, houses a stabling shed, a light repair workshop and a heavy repair workshop as well as washing facilities and testing tracks.

The depot has the capacity to accommodate 48 trains at any given time.

All trains undergo routine inspection and servicing once every three days, monthly, quarterly, biannually and annually. However, major overhauling is done only after a train clocks 600,000 kilometres.

Each train undergoes five levels of maintenance. The first four levels fall under routine periodic maintenance and are carried out at the Light Repair Workshops set up at all three depots of Dubai Metro. More info
