Everything looks like a computer simulation, but it is a reality. Unbelivable...

The metro development is cool, but I hate the idea of a gigantic highway occupying the area of what could be a great central park like thing with all the lining skyscrapers (or something other urban usage other than a transit desert)

I agree. It wouldn't be that expensive to build a cut-and-cover tunnel there, especially for Dubai.

They are not ... but still they don't know the geography, demographics, weather and city development progress/history to fully understand why and how.

I know that the highway was there before the buildings, but still...it looks really bad and I bet the noise is pretty big as well. It's just so weird for me that there are projects worth billions of dollars to make this place look good but they totally forget the gigantic strip of asphalt that destroys the landscape.

There's a word for it... urban planning. You don't have to go everywhere by car and I'm very glad Dubai is building their metro, a key economic driver. Just look at the urban planning renaissance happening in New York.
