More and more people around the world are moving to cities and urban areas. Therefore, pressures on urban infrastructure will come to define the next 100 years of human existence.
In the UAE, governments have been moving forward with a variety of infrastructure projects to help our emirates operate more efficiently with better public transport. One of the most successful infrastructure projects, the Dubai Metro, just celebrated its seventh anniversary.
The positive effect that the Metro has had on the city is not lost on urban planners and has resulted in plans to extend the Red Line by 16 kilometres from Nakheel Harbour and Tower Station to the site of the Expo 2020.
