Expo 2020 is coming to Dubai, so what are they doing to help people get there once they arrive here from all around the world? They're building a new line of the driverless train to reach Expo 2020 and it happens to be running right through the new area we've moved to in Al Furjan, the South of the City. They're constructing it up the middle of the road running from an existing station at Nakheel, which is near the Marina and the whole line will be completed in January 2019.
The last section of this piece of line is being lowered into place this week and as I'm off to the UK on Friday for a month, I expect on my return there will be further developments to the station they're building in the left of the picture. Having a station so close will be fantastic as it means even in the middle of summer when temps near 50c, I will be just about able to manage the short walk over there and will be able to access the whole of Dubai on public transport, from the beach to the Creeks to the World's largest Mall.
