Work covers the fit out of 13 Green Line stations
The local Lindner Depa Interiors has been awarded a second Dubai Metro contract worth AED245m for the fit-out of 11 Green Line stations.
The contractor expects to finish the project in the fourth quarter of 2010. The company is already working on the Dubai Metro project. In April 2008 it was awarded a AED375m ($102m) contract for the complete fit-out of 13 stations on the Red Line.
Under the new contract, Lindner Depa will fit out the ceilings, install wall claddings and windows to create the fire, water and heritage themes of the Green Line stations.
The Green Line will have 23 stations in total. The 22.5-kilometre-long line will be run between Al-Qusais and Al-Jadaf through Deira and Bur Dubai.
The client for both the Red and Green Line contracts is the JT Metro joint venture, which comprises Obayashi Corporation and Kajima Corporation, both of Japan; and Turkey’s Yapi Merkezi, which is executing the building works.
Lindner Depa Interiors is a joint venture company established by the local Depa and Germany’s Lindner Group.
The Red Line of Dubai Metro began operations on 9 September 2009 (MEED 14:9:09).
