The Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) has agreed with DURL Consortium undertaking Dubai Metro Project to prioritise the project's works that are outstanding, said Mattar Al Tayer, Chairman of the Board and Executive Director of RTA, yesterday.

"RTA will provide the biggest portion of cash injections out of its budget allocated by the Government of Dubai to cover the cost of the additional works on the Red and Green Lines, add new stations to meet the needs of property development projects, add a depot to accommodate the resultant increase in capacity, and increase the number of footbridges linking Metro stations. The remaining portion of additional works' cost will be funded through the project contractor," he said.
