The Dubai Metro has picked up the award for Transport Project of the Year for Public Transport at the 2009 Gulf Traffic awards.
In a ceremony held on Sunday evening, RTA’s director of planning and development of rail agency Abdul Redha Abu Al Hassan collected the award for the project, which the judges chose as the winner because “it will have the greatest impact on the safe and smooth mobility of the people of Dubai for decades and centuries to come.”
“As these sectors grow in importance throughout the region, so does the need to reward, appreciate and celebrate industry leaders and innovators – the Gulf Traffic Awards are an independent and prestigious endorsement of the quality of Middle East based transport and infrastructure professionals, companies and organisations,” said Sarah Woodbridge, Group Director – Exhibitions, IIR Middle East, the organisers of the Gulf Traffic Awards which took place alongside the Gulf Traffic Exhibition.
Gulf Traffic runs December 6-8 at Dubai International Exhibition Centre.
