The Dh3.67-billion Al Maryah Central, a 2.3 million square foot shopping centre on Al Maryah Island, Abu Dhabi, is planned to be connected to the Metro, a senior Gulf Related executive told ‘Emirates24|7’.

“The infrastructure on Al Maryah Island is superb and the island will be connected by 13 air-conditioned bridges. In addition to the normal public transport system such as buses, there will be a Metro stop connecting to our mall,” said Karim El Solh, Co-Managing Partner, Gulf Related.

“The master plan of the island does envision a Metro,” he stated, without confirming if the Metro would be functional by 2018 – the year when Al Maryah Central opens to general public. More info
