Route 2020 Tunnel Drilling Launches

H.H. Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, ruler, Dubai, has launched the tunnel drilling works of the Route 2020 Project, which extends the Dubai Metro Red.

The project is located 15 km from Nakheel Harbour and Tower Station to the site of Expo 2020. Al Maktoum also reviewed the interior design of the new Rolling Stocks of the Dubai Metro, which are being manufactured in France under a contract for the supply of 50 trains; 15 for serving Expo 2020 and 35 for upgrading the service of the metro.

The exterior design of the trains will remain as they are, in order to maintain the design identity of the Dubai Metro and its familiar colours.
