Three key Dubai Metro Stations are getting upgraded
A number of Dubai’s Metro stations are being upgraded to meet the demands of growing passenger numbers.
Construction at three key stations will improve passenger experience and increase safety during peak hours.
Work is being undertaken on the Dubai Metro Red line at stations including Dubai Internet City, Damac Properties and UAE Exchange, which is now 40 percent complete.
A new entrance is being built at Dubai Internet City, links are being improved between Damac Properties station and Dubai Marina Tram and a new entrance is being built at UAE exchange.
Pedestrian crossings, shaded rest areas, landscaping and signage are also being installed across the three sites.
After the upgrades the improvements will not only benefit passengers by pedestrians, cyclists and people of determination.
“This project is part of a master plan to improve the infrastructure of 40 metro and marine transport stations by 2025,” said Mattar Mohammed
Al Tayer, director general, chairman of the Board of Executive Directors of Roads and Transport Authority.
“The plan calls for improving the link between the stations and the surrounding urban and tourist destinations in a radius of 500 metres.
“It also aims to ensure safe and smooth accessibility of those areas to pedestrians, cyclists and drivers. The selection of those stations was based on several criteria such as the number of riders, number of people of determination users, population density, geographical distribution in the surrounding areas, and the number of mobility journeys between transit means.”
