Funding for Abu Dhabi metro approved

The Abu Dhabi Metro, which will run approximately 131km and be supported by tram and bus feeder, is set to be operational by 2016-17. Abu Dhabi Metro would be linked to the Dubai Metro and other cities in the UAE and to other GCC states.

Tourism is also beginning to rebound from its lows in 2008-2009, and large infrastructure projects such as the Dubai Metro, Burj Khalifa, Al Maktoum International Airport, Dubailand, the Yas and Saadiyat Island developments in Abu Dhabi, and many others will definitely attract more tourists as the global recovery gains momentum in the coming few years.
