Thanks all...Glad everyone likes the shots...

The metro gets my recommendations, ignore the minor technical issues, it gives you a different perspective of Dubai and honestly it's looking good!! :)

Yeh, but when are the trams gonna come to Abu Dhabi? That's what we need here - a quick and efficient tramway.

I tried to used the new Dubai metro yesterday (11th). It was chaos at the end of line park and ride. The staff were hiding in the office behind the ticket desks, with the concourse full of irate prospective passengers. There was no information to passengers, no one had a clue what was going on, if services were running, or if or when they would resume.

I instead continued my journey by road to the city centre. While there, I headed over to another station, where the lights were off, and Serco staff were saying come back tomorrow as the system had shut for the day due to 'many problems'. I asked a staff member blocking the entrance if this were true, and if so how people should get to their destinations. He just repeated that the system was shut for the day. I asked his name, and he said I can't tell you anything and walked off.

On my way home, I called in again at the Park and Ride, and lo and behold, the staff had come out of the office and trains were running - of a fashion.

It simply obvious that the system is not ready. It should have remained closed until it could be introduced properly

Clearly the staff are insufficiently trained to deal with service failures, and there are no contingency plans in place for replacement services. Telling passengers lies, hiding in the office, and saying 'I can't tell you anything' is simply is unacceptable. This is supposed to be a transport system, not a fairground ride that can be closed with no alternatives provided.

What a way to run a railway! At least Metrolink organised alternative transport in the recent problems on the Alty line

Stained: meant to ask you before, is the first image using a T&S lens, or is it a Photoshop/Lightroom processing filter that does the same effect?

frances said...

These pics are beautiful Stained, way to go!

Stained said...

Thanks Again...

nzm...it's photoshop processing though wish I could have used a T&S lens instead... :)
