Combating Covid-19: Dubai's RTA closes three Metro stations for two weeks
Green line stations Al Ras, Palm Deira and Baniyas Square shut as a health and safety precaution due to coronavirus.
Al Ras, Palm Deira and Baniyas Square Dubai Metro stations on the green line will be closed for two weeks from today amid the ongoing coronavirus crisis, the Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) has announced.
In a tweet, the RTA said the closures were being taken "in line with precautionary measures to ensure the highest levels of health and safety".
The announcement comes shortly after Dubai's Supreme Committee of Crisis and Disaster Management announced increased restrictions on movement in the Al Ras area of Dubai for two weeks from Tuesday, March 31 to facilitate enhanced sterilisation procedures.
Dubai Health Authority teams will provide all essential supplies to the residents of the area during the two-week period, Dubai Police announced.
