The Dubai Metro is a fully automated driverless metro network and runs underground in the city centre and on elevated viaducts elsewhere. Faithful+Gould was appointed for commercial support on all civil works associated with the Red and Green Lines of the Dubai Metro; which include 35 overground and the 10 underground stations.
Faithful+Gould was appointed to provide commercial support during the detailed design phase of the project, co-ordination with the rail systems; and close working with the contractor to ensure programme compliance.
Our services contributed to the achievement of delivering the project to meet the client’s immovable deadline, which was remarkable, given the tremendously tight deadline for such a complex project.
The Metro has been a resounding success, transporting over 30 million passengers in its first 12 months of operation, according to a report by the Roads and Transport Authority (RTA). Furthermore, it has been the benchmark for many more metro systems now being planned across the region.
