An incident at the Abu Baker Al Siddique station on Dubai Metro’s Green Line has left many stranded this morning, with the station being cleared, commuters said. The Roads and Transports Authority said it was looking into the incident, with no further clarification on what occurred.
All roads will lead to Dubai Metro’s Green Line on Friday when it will be flagged off by His Highness Shaikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai. The public can have the ride of their life on the new link from Saturday.
The Road and Transport Authority is paying the Dubai Rail Link Consortium (DURL), the firms involved in the development of Dubai Metro, in monthly installments of Dh169 million between June and September 2011. The balance of Dh5.8 billion will be paid in equal monthly installments over a period of seven years beginning October 2011.
The 23-kilometre Green Line, which starts at the Etisalat Station in Al Qusais near Emirates Road, will be missing two stops at first: the Al Jadaf and Creek stations. Those facilities are not scheduled to open because property projects in the area are not complete.
The division has won the Contractor of the Year category at the MEP awards for the past three years. It employs 16,000 and has an order book of AED2 billion.

It is also gearing up for completion of the Dubai Metro’s Green Line, and is continuing with work at the Burj Khalifa apartments. “Currently we are still number one because of the nature and size of our projects,” says Jegabber.
