London-based Weston Williamson+Partners (WW+P) has won the “Route 2020” competition for the Dubai 2020 rail link, a 15-kilometer, £2.2 billion metro Expolink in the United Arab Emirates

Working in collaboration with global engineer CH2M, Alstom, and Acciona and Gulermack, the firm was selected ahead of ten rival bids for the high-profile project, which will connect Nakheel Harbor & Tower with the World’s Fair site.

As an extension of Dubai’s Red Line, the project will include 11.8 kilometers of viaduct and 3.2 kilometers of underground track, creating seven new stations, including an interchange station with the Red Line that will feature a dramatic, wing-shaped terminus.

Dubai is a superbly dynamic city, said Chris Williamson, Partner at WW+P. It is a great chance to be a part of its expansion, particularly to contribute to the vast public transport opportunities by creating a proud legacy for the people.
