Multi-Billion Dubai Metro Line Reshuffles its Consortium: One of the Largest Upcoming Infrastructure Schemes in Dubai

Home » Projects » Multi-Billion Dubai Metro Line Reshuffles its Consortium: One of the Largest Upcoming Infrastructure Schemes in Dubai

The multi-billion Dubai Metro Line is expected to reshuffle its consortium according to an exclusive coverage by MEED. The project is one of Dubai’s most significant upcoming infrastructure schemes and is expected to commence soon. At the beginning of the year, Dubai’s Roads & Transport Authority issued the Dubai Metro Tender documents for the contract to design and construct the Dubai Metro Blue Line. Six consortiums had come up to bid for the tender of the project. These include consortiums comprising China Railway Rolling Stock Corporation, Turkey-based Limak Holding, and Mapaa.

It also included a consortium of Hyundai Rotem, China Civil Engineering Construction Company, and Nippon. Other consortiums include Siemens from Germany, South Korea-headquartered Samsung, India’s Larsen and Turbo, and Wade Adams, a locally based company. These are some of the consortiums that bid for the project at the beginning of the year. However, a consortium reshuffle could see some companies partnering up with others, which would differ from those in their prior consortium.

The Significance of the Multi-Billion Dubai Metro Blue Line

Apart from being one of the most significant upcoming infrastructure schemes in Dubai, the project is anticipated to be one of the most significant. One of the major significance of the project is its enhanced connectivity and vital hubs. A critical feature of the Blue Line is its essential arrangement, interfacing networks, and center points. The railway line will connect various spots, such as the famous Dubai Celebration City, the unique Dubai Silicon Desert spring, and Scholastic City. Moreover, the metro line guarantees a consistent network to significant objections. Another major impact that Blue Line will have is alleviating traffic congestion and improving Dubai’s transport network. The presentation of the Blue Line is supposed to decrease gridlock in Dubai altogether. Decreased gridlock prompts smoother travel and adds to a greener, more economical climate by diminishing fossil fuel byproducts.

The Scope of Works on the Blue Line

Once the consortium reshuffle is completed, the contracted company is responsible for all of the civil works of the Dubai Metro Blue Line. This includes its electromechanical works and the rolling stock and rail systems. Furthermore, the contractor will aid in the maintenance and operation works of the project for the first three years. The Blue Line is expected to link the existing Red and Green lines. Its total length will be 30 kilometers, with 15.5 kilometers of its length located underground and 14.5 kilometers above ground. Moreover, the line will contain a total of 14 stations, of which 7 of them will be elevated. There will also be 5 underground stations, including one interchange station and a couple of elevated stations that will be linked to both CenterPoint and Creek stations.

The State of Affairs Regarding the Project

The multi-billion Dubai Metro Blue consortium reshuffle has been received with much anticipation and eager. Once completed, the reshuffle is expected to set forth the expeditious completion of the Blue Line set for 2029. Furthermore, the Line addresses a great forward-moving step in Dubai’s excursion toward maintainable development and metropolitan greatness. It is also one of the most significant upcoming infrastructure projects in Dubai that needs international and local contractors to work as a unit for its implementation. The project is expected to revolutionize transport in Dubai and the UAE.
