The opening of these two final stations, which are located at the end of the Green Line track, will complete the operation of all the Dubai Metro stations and serve existing and under-construction projects, including the Culture Village and Sama Al Jadaf.


Mattar Al Tayer, Chairman of the Board and Executive Director of the RTA, said these two stations will also serve the Dubai Festival City through a marine transit service linking with the Creek station. “Al Wasl Club will also be linked with Al Jadaf Station through a bus route to be operated when matches are held. The RTA has provided 100 parking slots at Al Jadaf stations and a bus route for passengers of the two new stations.”


Al Jadaf and Creek stations are elevated metro stations where the concourse and platform are on the upper level of the elevated metro track. Each station extends 132 metres in length and 29 metres in width, and has a capacity to handle 11,000 passengers per hour per direction. The two stations are equipped with escalators and lifts.


Al Tayer said that these two stations will contribute significantly to expediting the development temp in the neighbourhood, and accordingly the ridership will pick up gradually as per the foreseeable inputs.


Some 2,100 riders at Al Jadaf Station and another 1,400 more passengers at Creek station are expected to use the Metro initially, and these numbers are poised to double with the opening of property development projects in the area, many of which are nearing completion.


“Through the Dubai Metro operator Serco Co., the RTA has completed all arrangements related to the operation of the two stations by carrying out technical test runs of the Dubai Metro, including testing the communication systems, automatic operation systems, power feed system and the air-conditioning system. It has also finalised the appointment of 16 employees, who have been deployed at the site to man the two metro stations after undergoing intense training exposures on delivering customers service, implementing regulations drawn up by the RTA to protect the facilities, and enforcing the rules against offenders,” said Al Tayer.


RTA has also coordinated with the Transport Security Department to deploy security personnel at the two stations to ensure the security and safety of the metro riders. Teams of emergency services — Civil Defence, Ambulance and Rescue — made field visits to the two stations to ensure safety.
