CW In Focus | Dubai Metro Route 2020's construction progress [2019]

CW's latest YouTube episode explores the construction progress of Dubai Metro's 15km extension, Route 2020

Expo 2020 Dubai is nearly 18 months away from opening its doors, and a crucial aspect of the mega-event’s transport infrastructure is Route 2020, Dubai Metro Red Line's extension to the next World Expo's site.

According to an announcement by Dubai’s Roads and Transport Authority (RTA), the line is 70% complete.

Route 2020 spans 15km from Nakheel Harbour and Tower Station to the World Expo’s site, and comprises 11.8km of elevated and 3.2km of underground track.

The completion rate of track work on the line has hit 80%, while 50% to 60% of station works have finished, RTA said in March 2019.

The Expo 2020 Dubai station within Route 2020 is also 50% complete, with 90% of the station’s metal structures installed.
