Part of the Dubai Metro red line to be partially closed from Jan 2018

The Dubai Metro Red Line will cease service between Jumeirah Lakes Towers Station and Ibn Battuta Station.


If you are a metro user, then here is a reminder for you. Dubai Metro services between Jumeirah Lakes Towers and Ibn Battuta will be closed from 5th January until the middle of 2019.

The travelers will have to use a bus service, as the rail service will be closed as part of construction of the extension to the Dubai Expo 2020 site.

Route 2020 will involve a new station and linking it with the existing one. The extension requires the full closure of Nakheel Harbour and Tower Station as well as the attached multi-level Park-N-Ride Terminal.

The new route is scheduled to open on May 20th, 2020 to have up to 46,000 riders an hour in both directions.

RTA is always ready to fulfill the needs of the public transport users in Dubai and providing an excellent service to the customers.
