Dubai Metro in new areas - Dubai Metro Blue Line


The announcement of the Dubai Metro Blue Line on Friday, November 24, has become the talk of the town, and for good reason — the 30km extension is poised not only to significantly reduce travel time but also to serve as a crucial lifeline for residents, connecting them seamlessly to key areas.

Residents, workers, professionals, traders, and students in the nine key areas earmarked for the recently-announced Dubai Metro extension project have welcomed the extension and are eagerly awaiting the forthcoming construction.

The extension will elevate their mobility and accessibility to all major urban centres and other developmental zones in Dubai. The Blue Line will encompass Mirdif, Al Warqa, International City 1 and 2, Dubai Silicon Oasis, Academic City, Ras Al Khor Industrial Area, Dubai Creek Harbour, and Dubai Festival City. The new line will be connected to the existing Red and Green Lines.

Congestion on key roads within the project area is expected to decrease by 20 per cent when Blue Line becomes operational by 2029, and travel time by Metro within the area is expected to range only between 10 and 25 minutes.
