Murali Serpakkam, managing director of Al-Futtaim Engineering, talks about the Dubai Metro project and why he is particularly proud of it.

In an exclusive interview with MEP Middle East, Serpakkam said: "This [Dubai Metro] project was delivered in 2009. It has a date that is cast in stone – 9-9-2009 and the metro had to start running at 9 pm. It was quite a challenging job. Challenging because it was the first metro in the region. Al Futtaim Group’s support was there. My team supported it big time."

He added: “When the metro opened at 9pm. And when HH Sheikh Mohammed took the ride. I had immense pride in my chest.”

Check out the full video for Serpakkam’s comments about the Dubai Metro project.
