The works involve the construction of the 20-kilometre green line running in a loop from Dubai International Airport through Deira and Bur Dubai to Rashidiya.

The DURL consortium is led by Japan’s Mitsubishi Corporation and includes Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, Obayashi Corporation and Kajima Corporation, all of Japan, and Turkey’s Yapi Merkezi. France’s Systra and the US’ Parsons International will oversee construction. Australia’s Bovis Lend Lease will provide project management services on behalf of the client.
