Dubai Metro

Dubai Metro

The Dubai Metro is a urban transit rail system operating in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. Two lines are currently operational, the Red Line and Green Line. Additional lines are also planned for coming years.

For the construction of the Red Line, Dextra has been involved between 2005 and 2010 together with the contractors making J T Metro (Obayashi Corporation – Kajima – YapiMerkezi) for the supply of numerous Dextra solutions for various packages and stations.

For the station construction, especially for the foundation works (piles and perimeter d-walls), Dextra supplied its Bartec rebar splicing solutions. Rebar couplers were used for vertical connections in piles D-Walls, columns and piers. Rebar couplers were also used for reconnecting slabs onto the D-Walls. A total of 800,000 Bartec rebar couplers have been supplied for this project, supported by several Bartec equipment sets maintained by local Dextra Aftersales team.

For minor repair applications, RepairGrip couplers were also supplied to splice rebar which had not be prepared with a thread and which had unsufficient produding length to be spliced.

For foundation works as well. Dextra supplied more than 60km of Sonitec sonic tubes, used the CSL integrity testing of piles and walls. Sonitec can be easily assembled at site thanks to their push-fit mouth system, boosting teams productivity and avoiding the tedious task of welding tubes together.

Finally, to accelerate tunneling breakthrough phases and minimize TBMs (tunnel boring machines) time when exiting/entering shafts and stations, Dextra engineered the design of GFRP Soft Eyes and supplied more than 400 km of composite rebar for numerous station packages.
