Capita Symonds is part of a Japanese-led consortium appointed to build a £1.86bn rail system in Dubai. The firm will provide all civil, structural, architectural and mechanical and electrical design supported by UK subconsultants KBR and Llewelyn Davies. The 69.7km metro comprises two lines crossing Dubai including a bored tunnel beneath the central business district and elevated viaducts through other parts of the city. The consortium led by Mitsubishi Heavy Industries beat rival bids from Alstom of France, Bombardier of Canada and Siemens of Germany.
