Expo 2020 - Dubai Metro Route 2020
A new railway metro line will provide transportation for passengers arriving at Dubai International Airport to the Expo2020 site. The new line will extend the existing Dubai Metro Red Line to the Expo 2020 site. It runs about 12 km of viaduct with elevated stations serving The Gardens, Discovery Gardens and Al Furjan. The last 3 km is underground line serving the Jumeirah Golf Estates, Dubai Investment Park and the EXPO 2020 site.
Kersten has been awarded bending box sections for the three elevated metro stations. The stations are real architectural pieces of art. The 3D curved canopies offer shadow to the travelling passengers and contribute to the theme ‘Connecting minds, creating the future’ of EXPO 2020.
Kersten has bent all box sections RHS 200x100x10.0 / RHS200x120x12.0mm, 2D-curved over the major axis (X-axis) with multiple radii per each segment.
The 35th World Expo will be held in Dubai (UAE) from October 20th, 2020 to April 10th, 2021. The theme will be ‘Connecting minds, Creating the future’. There are over 200 participants and a number of 20 million visitors is expected of which 70% to come from outside the UAE. The urban impact on Dubai is very big. Over 440 hectares of dessert have been transformed into an innovative architectural landscape. They also have to take care of all the amenities and facilities to welcome up to 250,000 visitors per day!
