With six underground stations and 12 elevated stations to be built, the line is scheduled to be completed in March 2010. It will have a total length of 23km and will comprise two interchange stations with the Red Line at Union Square and Burjuman. Park and ride facilities will also be available at the Al Qusais Depot.

Adnan Al Hammadi, Director of Construction, Rail Agency, said, "Preliminary works which include utility diversions and civil works have begun for Saeediya and Baniyas. The main construction like the building of the diaphragm wall for Al Gubaiba is progressing well and the demolition of all buildings for Al Ras Station has been completed."

"Preparatory works are in progress at Baniyas and traffic diversions are expected to commence by the middle of this month. The diversion will close Musalla Road and Al Maktoum Hospital Road at the intersection. Traffic coming from Al Maktoum Road will have to curve with the road, turn left and left again at Al Burj Road to get to Musalla Road. Traffic coming from Musalla Road would have to turn right on to Al Burj Road, turn left to go behind Baniyas Square and left again to reach Al Maktoum Road."
