Dubai to extend Metro service


Dubai has approved plans to build an additional three lines for its Metro service by 2030 – adding to the two routes already in operation.

Or are developments like the world’s largest robotic car park – which opened here last week – a more likely solution to the strains created by more vehicles on the roads?
