Seven metro stations on Route 2020 have been awarded the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Gold Certification, according to Dubai’s Roads and Transport Authority (RTA).

“The US Green Buildings Council had confirmed that the RTA has the world’s highest number of LEED v4 BD+C: NC certified Transit projects.
