Yes, the Red Line that runs above ground for some 90% of the 45 kms length. Parallel to Sheikh Zayed Road too.

Oh wow nice shots. I really like the design of this building and it's turning out nicely, but to me the cladding looks kinda cheesy. I dunno, hopefully it'll look better when it's finished.
