The Expo 2020 site in Dubai is rapidly taking shape with construction now in full swing.
All major construction works at the site – spread across 4.38 sqkm – are slated to be completed by October 2019, one year before the opening of the six-month long expo.
More than 60 million working hours have now been completed at the site, Dubai Media Office revealed on Twitter on Monday. It also shared aerial footage of the site, showing progress of the construction work.
Located adjacent to Al Maktoum International Airport in Dubai South, the expo site features three thematic pavilions – Opportunity, Mobility and Sustainability.
They are the sub-themes of the expo, which is themed ‘Connecting Minds, Creating the Future’.
“Major construction is on course to be completed by October 2019, leaving plenty of time for testing and preparation ahead of the grand opening,” senior vice president of real estate and delivery, Ahmed Al Khatib, told Gulf Business last year.
