After four years of construction, Dubai will finally have its own Metro. The Metro Red Line will be opened tonight at Galleria of the Mall station by Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid, Vice President of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai. The general public will be able to start using the Metro tomorrow morning from 5:30am.

The Metro is hoped to cut traffic congestion on Dubai’s roads and increase public transport usage from 10 to 30 per cent.
