That plan includes an overall number of 197 stations to serve six Dubai Metro lines: the Red and the Green lines that are already operational, alongside the Blue Line, Violet Line, Gold Line and the Purple Line. “Accomplishment of the final train networks shall be largely contingent on completion of the developmental projects in the emirate and the population growth, too,” Al Tayer said.
Three new Metro lines — Blue, Gold and Purple — and a Jumeirah tram route will be up and running by 2030. Besides these, the current Red and Green lines will grow longer and will serve a growing population in the densely populated urban areas of Dubai. “The plans have been endorsed by His Highness Shaikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai,” said Al Tayer.
Ninety per cent of the work on the Green Line of Dubai Metro has been completed and the second line of the rail network is on schedule to begin its journey from August, a senior RTA official said. At the moment, the work on the Green Line is going according to the plan, said Ramadan Abdullah, Director of Operations at RTA’s Rail Agency told Khaleej Times.
Buying a ticket on the Dubai Metro is fast and easy. The best bargain of all is a silver Nol smart-card. This costs Dhs20 (RM16.85) and includes Dhs14 of stored value. The card is used to touch on and off at each Metro station or on linked feeder buses or water buses, and can be topped up at ticket-vending machines in all Metro stations and at 64 bus stops throughout Dubai.
After the two lines, will be realized the purple or the blue line? Is the purple an high speed line? What does mean high speed for a metro line? At the end and at the beginning of blue and purple line, the two lines have the same route so will be shared the tunnel? What is the status of plan regards the yellow lines, the monarails to the palms?
Islamic bonds of National Central Cooling Company, known as Tabreed, rose on speculation the provider of air conditioning services to the Dubai Metro may follow Aldar Properties PJSC in getting financial support from Abu Dhabi. Tabreed’s floating-rate $200 million sukuk maturing in July rose 13 cents on the dollar in the past month to 88 cents on Tuesday, according to Exotix Ltd, an investment bank specialising in illiquid bonds.
“The Metro lifted 206,000 passengers compared to 140,000 passengers it carries on normal days. All these are positive indicators that we’re moving into the right direction of realising our target,” said Ramadan. At a rate of 140,000 passengers per day, this makes it about 4,020,000 per month.
