Dubai: Dubai Metro’s Red Line will have an additional stop — Energy station in Jebel Ali — operating from September 30, the Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) has announced.

Until now 28 of the 29 stations on the Red Line were operational and Energy station will be the last station to open its doors to commuters.

The station, expected to serve 2,500 people daily, is located between Danube and Ibn Battuta stations in Jebel Ali industrial area.

Energy station provides an additional gateway to residents and workers of the sprawling Jebel Ali area.

“The station will serve various communities and companies, giving an additional access to thousands of people,” said Mohammad Yousuf Al Mudharreb, director of rail operation at RTA’s Rail Agency.

The locality is already served by three other stations — Jebel Ali, Danube and Ibn Battuta — and the fourth station will further enhance the reach of public transport in the area around Dubal and other industrial clusters. More info
