SYSTRA wins the Dubai Metro Extension

The Roads and Transport Authority of Dubai has awarded phases 2 and 3 for the extension of their iconic Metro system to SYSTRA, thus renewing their trust in the Group that has already managed the engineering and consultancy projects.

SYSTRA, in association with AECOM, will take charge of transport planning, preliminary design and invitations to tender, for the second and third phases, for 14 months.

Phase 2 of the Dubai Metro will serve the town’s main attractions, including Madinat Jumeirah, Jumeirah Beach Hotel and Burj Al-Arab, as well as the Mall of Emirates (MOE), the greatest shopping mall in the United Arab Emirates. On the opposite side of Cheikh Zayed Road, the MOE is connected to the project zone through the Red Line metro station <>.

Phase 2 is part of the master plan for Jumeirah Central Project, managed by Dubai Holding. This huge investment project was launched by the Governor of Dubai, Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum.

Phase 3 will serve the Jumeirah Beach Road to the north-west of Dubai. The route crosses projects already underway, such as the one-way road system. Consequently, the area between Jumeirah Road and the Al Wasl district is being totally redefined. This has to integrate into the feasibility study for the design of Phase 3.
