A consortium led by Japan’s Mitsubishi Heavy Industries has put the brakes on construction work on the Dubai Metro due to a disagreement over payments, oneof the firms said Thursday.

“We are slowing the pace of the construction for the purpose of negotiating the terms of contracts,” said Toshitaka Kawahara, a spokesman for Obayashi Corp., which is one of the constructors.

The consortium also comprises Mitsubishi Corp., Kajima Corp., and Turkey’s Yapi Merkezi.

A source close to one of the companies said that the construction work appeared to have been temporarily halted.
