Aedas has stepped into the boots of Llewelyn Davies Yeang (LDY) to take on the design of the new Dubai metro project.
The practice is to draw up plans for 50 stations on the £1.86 billion light-rail system, after LDY left the scheme in October last year.
Backed by the Dubai Municipality, the new metro will boast a state-of-the-art, driverless system running in tunnels below the central district and on elevated sections through other parts of the city.
Boasting more than 70km of track, the system will have two lines - the Red and the Green lines - and will have a fleet of more than 100 trains.
A timescale for the project is currently unknown. by Richard Waite
