Dubai to extend Metro's Green line

19 October 2011

The Green line will be extended to Dubai International Academic City

Dubai’s Roads & Transport Authority (RTA) says it plans to extend the Green line of Dubai metro to Dubai International Academic City (DIAC).

The Green line currently runs between Al-Qusais and Al-Jaddaf. The Green line began operations on 9 September (MEED 10:9:11).

“We’re carrying out surveys and are planning to come up with a number of routes that will connect the DIAC with different areas of the city starting from next year,” says Eisa al-Dossari, chief executive of the Public Transport Agency at the RTA.

“We are also planning to extend the Green line up to the DIAC and work is currently at the planning stage. We know more than 30,000 students travel back and forth to this area and the metro would greatly benefit them.”
