Dubai Metro Station

I started documenting the new metro line and station at Discovery Gardens back in November 2017. 

When this photo was taken in January, I had no idea where the station was going to be located, turns out it's right where the piece of yellow machinery is. 

I wrote a post back in June with photo's of the stations development which you can find here.

Peter has continued to take random photos for me while I'm in the UK, I suspect by the time I get back in October it will be complete, although the line isn't due to open until early 2019.

It doesn't look like much has been done over the past few months, but just take a look at the first picture and see how much they've done in 7 already.

  1. I do find it amazing how quickly buildings take shape in Dubai. I can't imagine how many people they must have working on them. It's great that picture has kept taking photos for you.

    1. I didn't ask Peter he's just become as fascinated by the build as i have

  2. This series of photographs is just fascinating. They don't much about in Dubai do they? Seven months to get that far. Just amazing (although you do hear stories about the working conditions!). #mysundayphoto

    1. new labours laws were introduced in 2017, they also work 24/7 there's no bank holiday nonsense there

  3. Hi Suzanne, construction certainly does move in Dubai. If that was in Greece it would take them seven months to have got that far! How the Greek built the Parathanon I don't know.



    1. it does amaze me when i see buildings in the UK contracted in 1800 within 4 years and whole modern day housing estates taking just as long

  4. I can never quite believe how quick things happen there.

    1. me neither, every time i come away i return to a new place

  5. It's taking shape so quickly. Do they have any working restrictions or can they work 24 hours a day?

    Hope you have a good Sunday and thank you for linking up to #MySundayPhoto

    1. 24/7 work, but restrictions on noise at night and no daytime working outdoors in summer between 12-3pm

  6. It's all happening so quickly. Great to see the progress.

    1. I can't wait to see what else has changed when i go home

  7. They don't hang around do they! lol Everything is built so quickly in Dubia x
