New rail route to cater for Expo 2020 Dubai
We are providing the access for work at Discovery Gardens Metro Station allowing for the construction of Dubai’s newest metro line, Route 2020.
As its name suggests, it is being constructed to cater for Expo 2020 Dubai, which is predicted to attract around 25 million tourists to the region over a 6-month period.
The UAE was elected as host of the Expo 2020 in 2013. It is a universal exposition or 'world's fair', which, according to the Bureau of International Expositions (BIE), may occur every five years, and may last up to six months. The themes of World Expos must address a universal challenge facing humanity. Dubai Expo 2020 focuses on 'Connecting Minds, Creating the Future', with subthemes of Sustainability, Mobility and Opportunity. Brogan Group are proud to be participating in crucial projects as part of the build up to Expo 2020 in Dubai.
