Work on the US$7.6bn Dubai Metro has been halted for the time being due to delay in payment from the Dubai government. Construction of the Dubai Metro project is being undertaken by the consortium led by Mitsubishi Corp, Kajima Corp and Turkey's Yapi Merzeki. Oyabashi, one of the contractors for the project said they were slowing the pace of construction work for the purpose of negotiating terms of contract with the Dubai government. (AFP) Halt in the construction works on the Dubai Metro does not come as a surprise. LCL Corp, which was doing the interior fit out works for the Dubai Metro "Red Line" worth more than RM300m, has been having collection problems from this project the past year as the consortium also faced collection challenges from the Dubai government. It would be positive if the consortium is able to secure back payments from the Dubai government as some of these funds could flow back to sub-contractors like LCL Corp.
