Dubai Monorail On Track

Work on the Dubai Monorail system continues despite delays in other transportation projects caused by the economic slowdown.  The monorail will house 40,000 residents.  Residents in the City of Arabia neighborhood will be connected when the project is complete.  Ilyas and Mustafa Galadari Group are the developers for City of Arabia.  Their executive director said system is still in the early stages of design and they hope to construct it soon.  Syed Khalil said they will first build 2km of rolling stock and then finish with an extra 3km of track.

Developers of City of Arabia plan a 20 million square foot community where residents will not need to use cars because of the monorail and its 11 stations.
