Everything You Need to Know About the Dubai Metro Map 2021 PDF
Dubai’s transport department released an updated version of the Dubai Metro Map 2021 PDF recently, featuring several changes to the overall design and some new stations that have been announced over the past year. Here’s everything you need to know about it. First, take a look at what the map looks like now
The New Lines
The biggest change is at Rashidiya, where an extension of line 1 will branch off in two directions: one going north and one heading south. The northern branch will go all the way to Expo 2020 and add three new stations: Palm Deira, Jumeirah Lakes Towers (JLT) and Nakheel Harbour & Tower, with a temporary terminal at Ghusais. The southern branch of line 1 will go as far as Al Qusais.
Al Qusais Line (Green)
The Al Qusais Line will be 15.1km long, and will serve 18 stations, with an expected daily ridership of 10,000 passengers. It will run from Mall of Emirates station on Sheikh Zayed Road, under Al Barsha and across Sheikh Zayed Road itself before terminating at Arabian Ranches. The line is scheduled for completion in 2020.
Emirates Road Line (Red)
The Emirates Road Line will cover a distance of 41.6 kilometers from Nakheel Harbour & Tower Station to Shindagha Station, with 29 metro stations in between. A trip from Nakheel Harbour & Tower Station to Ibn Battuta Mall would take about 51 minutes, for example. Service on night hours will be available on both days and nights.
Deira City Centre Line (Blue)
This line will have an additional station (Burj-Al-Arab Jumeirah) and provide more access between key areas in Deira. The stations currently under construction include Burjuman, Mall of Emirates, Nad Al Hamar/Nad Al Sheba and Burj Al Arab Jumeirah. The total cost of upgrading Deira’s three metro lines is $2.3 billion (AED8 billion). All six stations are expected to be completed by April 2019.
Nakheel Harbour & Tower Line (Purple)
The Nakheel Harbour & Tower Line of Dubai’s Red Line metro, which was announced by His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum in 2009, has been developed by property developer Nakheel and covers an area stretching from Burj Khalifa to Jumeirah. The Red Line project will be executed in three phases.
Oud Metha Line (Pink)
The first phase of Oud Metha Line is currently under construction and will open in 2018. This is a 7-station line that runs from Marina station in Jebel Ali, down to Al Rashidiya. The extension will add three new stations—Zabeel Park, Palm Deira, and Oud Metha—and link up with Red Line at Union Station. The 4.5km extension includes 11 new rail cars that can accommodate 1,280 passengers at peak times.
