Dubai Metro - first day of launch

This is a hot-off-press photo from Dubai Metro. Brand new - in a traditional arabic style. This is really amazing!
UAE did fantastic job!

There will be test runs conducted on a 4 kilometre section of the elevated track near Jebel Ali, checking all the management systems as well as the trains themselves.

There’s a main power station for the Metro, in Jebel Ali, and that’s reported to be completed. The Depot in Jebel Ali which will be large enough to accommodate 44 trains is said to be more than half completed. A train will consist of five carriages with a maximum load of 645 passengers.
