The cladding is going on Dubai Metro

Not long till the first of the two metro stations near us in Dubai is finished, cladding almost complete.

I've no idea of the official opening date other than it will be fully operational by Expo 2020.

The photos were taken:
 September 29th, October 14th, 21st & 27th.

Note the little blue hut in the bottom center of each photo, it's where they do all their measuring from.

  1. My eldest is in the building trade and he says cladding is one of the more fun parts of a project.

  2. thats a really interesting job your son has, i'm just glad all new cladding now is fire safe, we've had some really bad fires here in Dubai due to cladding

  3. Wow, that has come on a long way in such a short space of time! Will be interested to see what it looks like when it's finished.

    1. can't wait till it's up and running as it will save me alot of time sitting in traffic getting around the city

  4. I love the way you have put these photos together. Looking forward to seeing the end result.

  5. Love this montage of images. It's amazing to see how the metro is coming along and I lvoe the detail about the blue hut! #mysundayphoto

  6. It’s really taking shape now isn’t it. #mysundayphoto

  7. I keep wondering what it's meant to look like, it's kind of like a whale
