Dubai soon to see metro facility with the payment of contracts
Dubai's transit authority told that the half finished work of city's metro system has resumed completing in time as contractors are being paid.
The recent piece of news came Thursday via a statement, after there were reports in media regarding the delay of work on the Arab Gulf's first rapid transit by the project's Japanese-led consortium due to a dispute over late payments.
In the month of September, Dubai inaugurated part of the metro system, however only about a third of the initial line's stations are ready and it will be February when the remaining stations on the 32-mile red line would commence functioning.
The Emirate has told that the cost of the metro's first lines will be $7.6 billion, about 80 percent more than originally planned.
