The plans for Abu Dhabi's metro network project were modified and the length of the line was greatly reduced. While the length of the line was considered as 130 km in the first plans, it was decided to make the line in 70 km.
The first phase of the line will be ready in 18 at the latest within the scope of new plans. 2020 km / h underground vehicles are planned to speed up to 40 km / h.
The transportation plan also includes the inclusion of two tram lines of 40 km up to 2018. The tram will run at an average speed of 20 km / s.
