On Saturday morning, the authority issued a statement: "The RTA has successfully resumed Dubai Metro’s full operations." The station was scheduled to restart operations on May 28 but has reopened ahead of plan.

Energy metro station has reopened after all maintenance and safety tests were completed to ensure it is "ready to operate at the highest standards and efficiency."
