Dubai Metro, Dubai, UAE
The Dubai Metro is a rapid transit rail network in Dubai. Pandrol has been working with the rail operator and contractor team on the Red and Green Lines delivered in 2009, and the Red Line extension, currently under construction. Pandrol supplied VIPA Double Resilient (DRS) baseplates as the fastening system across the network, which runs underground in the city centre and on elevated viaducts elsewhere (elevated railway). All trains are fully automated and driverless, and, together with stations, are air conditioned with platform edge doors to make this possible. This is the first metro of its kind to be built in the Arabian Peninsula, and has been operational since 2009.
