Emaar Properties PJSC, the property developer, has announced the opening of the new 820-metre long air conditioned metro link that connects the Burj Khalifa/The Dubai Mall Metro Station with attractions in Downtown Dubai. Visitors now have an air conditioned passage from the Metro to various leisure, shopping, commercial and lifestyle amenities in Downtown Dubai, including Burj Khalifa, The Dubai Mall, Souk Al Bahar, several hotels, and Emaar Square, the development’s commercial hub. The travellator also facilitates the convenience of visitors to Downtown Dubai’s new commercial precinct, the announcement added.

According to Emaar, the metro link has 10 travellators with a central walkway for pedestrian use, starting at the Burj Khalifa/The Dubai Mall Metro station entrance and travels through the Downtown Dubai development before connecting directly with The Dubai Mall.

Commenting on the new link, Ahmad Al Matrooshi, Managing Director, Emaar Properties, said, “The direct connection with the Dubai Metro, which is now one of the most popular public transport modes in the city, will help in reducing vehicular traffic and enable visitors to simply walk across from the station to Downtown Dubai through a temperature-controlled travellator.”
