The Crown Prince of Dubai, Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, inaugurated Phase I of the Dubai LRT (Al Sufouh) on Tuesday 11th November. It is world’s only LRT to be ground level powered along its entire length. The ceremony included a fireworks display over Dubai Marina attended by the local authorities as well as Pierre Verzat, Mahmoud Dow and Arnaud Valranges from SYSTRA.
At the start of October, SYSTRA joined the ALAMYS (Asociación Latinoamericana de Metros Y Subterráneos), whose members include most South American metro operators and transport engineering companies (Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Columbia, Ecuador, Mexico, Peru, Panama, Venezuela).
