With the UAE’s ongoing strategy to grow its population, there is a need for infrastructure improvements. The expected demographic growth to one million people by 2040 has outlined the need to supplement the metro network with another line to provide convenient transportation links between several neighborhoods.

The Roads and Transportation Authority announced the start of work on a blue metro line in northeast Dubai in early 2024, consisting of 14 stations. Two of them can be used to transfer to the green and red lines. The length of the branch is 30 kilometers, and half of the route will be underground and the other half will be above-ground. 

Вlue line will connect Bur Dubai and Deira, Downtown and Business Bay, Silicon Oasis and Dubai Marina, JBR and Expo City. The project is scheduled for completion by 2029, which will coincide with the 20th anniversary of the Dubai Metro. 

The increase in the Emirates Metro route network is due to statistics that show that the majority of locals and foreigners prefer this mode of transportation.
