    Dubai Metro

    A rapidly expanding population, plus increasing numbers of tourists (the target is 15 million annually by 2010) has placed great strain on Dubai’s transport infrastructure. Congestion is frankly horrendous. The Dubai Metro system, currently under construction, aims to ease this congestion and reduce passenger travelling time.

    4 Lines are being constructed:

    Trains will be driverless and include first class and women and children only sections. Extensive window panels will offer great views of the city.

    Stations will offer taxi depots and park-and-ride facilities.
