​United Arab Emirates

Route 2020 Metro Rail Project, Dubai

​ The Project consists in an investment of € 2.9 billion to build seven rail stations, extend the existing red line and build a new yellow rail line to the airport in preparation for Expo 2020 Dubai. The 15-kilometre-long line (elevated and underground) will pass through heavily developed urban residential and commercial communities. Primary Project risks relate to air pollution, vibration and noise, as well as health and safety and working conditions of labourers during the Project's construction phase. Impacts associated with involuntary resettlement, biodiversity, indigenous peoples and cultural heritage are considered to be minimal or not applicable since the Project will be implemented in a developed urban area. The Project's risks and impacts will be mitigated through a combination of Project-specific construction socio-environmental management plans, the Sponsors' corporate-level policies and procedures and standards, host-country laws and regulations, and compliance with the IFC Performance Standards.
