It will be the world's longest driverless rail system, with a total length of approximately 75 kilometers, consisting of the newly completed Red Line and the Green Line (Phase II) currently under construction, which will run through the old city along Dubai Creek. The network will substantially ease Dubai's traffic congestion stemming from rapid population growth.
