Dubai Metro could soon be even quieter and more pleasant to use following some changes.
People who use the Metro after taking flights to Dubai could find the network is more pleasant to use than before as the system is set to run more quietly.
The Roads and Transport Authority has announced it is joining with German company Gerb Worldwide to find ways of making the transport system run more smoothly and reduce the level of noise it creates.
Steps to achieve this will include reducing the vibrations and sound caused in areas adjoining the tracks, although it noted this noise is a natural result of the trains travelling along the tracks when filled with passengers.
“As per the agreement, the Rail Agency will work with Gerb in conducting site surveys to assess the areas experiencing vibrations and noises due to the movement of trains,” said chief executive officer of the Rail Agency Engr Adnan Ahmad Al Hammadi.
People leaving flights to Dubai could find more people than normal using the Metro on January 18th, as the emirate is set to mark Car Free Day.
