RTA to expand Dubai Metro’s Red, Green Lines

Dubai's Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) has finalised plans for expanding Dubai Metro's Red and Green Lines, with work expected to begin as early as next year, Gulf News has reported. The plans will see the Red Line extended from Rashidiya to Mirdif, to go with earlier plan to extend the Green Line from Al Jaddaf to Academic City. Both extensions are expected to be operational before 2020. "The RTA is conducting more studies on the proposed extensions and the actual date to start work on the projects next year will be decided once the studies are complete. Irrespective of the start date, the projects will be in operation by 2020," acting CEO of the RTA's Rail Agency, Abdullah Yousuf Al Ali, told the daily.
