This question has been posed on this forum before -- how is Dubai going to move all the people around that they're expecting to fill all those skyscrapers that they're building?
It turns out, Dubai is actually planning a subway system. Good for them. I bet it will be fabulous. Here's an article I ran across in AME News:
9,000 men for Metro
United Arab Emirates: Monday, July 10 - 2006 at 08:09
9,000 men are working on the construction of Dubai's Metro system, reported Gulf News. At the current time, work is focusing on the diaphragm walls for the underground stations and then, from November, tunnelling work and viaduct construction will commence. A project official said that the design team for the Metro system included experts who had helped shape the interior for the Burj Al Arab and Dubai International Airport.

Thanks for all that info malec. I wonder if this will rival the Soviet subways of the communist era.
