Dubai Expo Site $75 – Limited to 40 participants

The main site of Expo 2020 Dubai will be a 438-hectare area (1083 acres) located between the cities of Dubai and Abu Dhabi, near Dubai’s southern border with Abu Dhabi. The master plan, designed by the American firm HOK, is organized around a central plaza, entitled Al Wasl, enclosed by three large thematic districts. Each one is dedicated to one of the sub-themes of Expo 2020 – Opportunity, Mobility and Sustainability. Dubai has also been emphasizing on investments in various sectors such as economic growth, real estate, environmental avenues and public affairs. In recent times, Dubai has made major investments in real estate and has introduced the world’s largest solar power project, planned to begin by the start of Expo 2020. The city of Dubai is also keen on giving equal prominence to public relationships. The initiative, titled the Dubai Happiness Agenda, has 16 programmes under four themes that sum up 82 projects to be set in the city with an aim to make the city the happiest by 2020.

Infinity Bridge

Dubai’s award in 2013 of the World Exposition (Expo 2020) served as the catalyst for the Route 2020 project, a new metro route connecting the existing Dubai Red Line with the Expo site in the south of the city. Route 2020 is the first major rail extension to the existing Dubai Metro rail network. The project consists of approximately 15km of metro alignment which consist of 11.8km of viaduct and 3.2km of tunnel. It also features seven LEED Gold certified metro stations consisting of one interchange station, three elevated stations, two underground stations and a signature Iconic Station at the Expo Site as well as the supply of 50 trainsets, of which 15 are needed for the new line and 35 to increase capacity on the existing network. The scope also included a number of enhancements to the existing network. The new line will establish a direct metro connection between Dubai Airport, the City and the Expo Site. The number of passengers to use Route 2020 is expected to reach 125 thousand commuters per day in year 2020 and will rise to 275 thousand commuters by year 2030. The Dubai Metro’s Route 2020 main objective was to provide an efficient and reliable transportation service to the EXPO 2020 event as well as to existing major developments such as the Green Community, future planned developments along and adjacent to the route of the line, and potentially to the Dubai World Central – Al Maktoum International Airport. This connection to the Airport, when implemented will provide a passenger railway link between all the major airports in Dubai. The Dubai Metro Route 2020 Project runs from Jabal Ali Metro Station on Sheikh Zayed Road to the new development at the Expo 2020 site, with planned extension to the Dubai World Central – Al Maktoum International Airport. The area covered is a mixed land use area including industrial, business, residential and mixed-use developments.
