Dubai's newest metro station opened today at the Expo 2020 site.

The station is only for use by Expo 2020 employees and other eligible travellers until October 1.

It will go into general use for all passengers after the official opening later this year, when the event is under way, said the Road and Transport Authority.

The Red Line will allow passengers an uninterrupted journey from Al Rashidiya Station all the way to the Expo 2020 Station. Previously, this required switching trains at an interchange station.

Another station also opened at Dubai Investment Park today.

The two new stations opened just six months after the maiden journey on Route 2020 in January, with stops at four stations – Jabal Ali, The Gardens, The Discovery Gardens and Al Furjan.

A further station will open on October 1 at Jumeirah Golf Estates.
