Dubai’s push to fast track infrastructure development will get a major fillip with the start of Dubai Tram service soon. The Roads and Transport Authority will start test run of the Tram within the next two weeks time.
RTA said the first zone test-run will start from January 26th, 2014 and it’s not open to passengers. The second test-run will start from April 16th and third from June 14th.
The authority said two Tram stations will be connecting with Dubai Metro. Jumeirah Lake Towers and Dubai Marina Metro Stations will be linked to Dubai Tram in the third zone starting June 14th.
The Tram network comprises 17 passenger stations, 11 of which are covered under Phase I and spread across activity and population density areas along the tramway. The fleet comprises 11 trams in the initial phase, and 14 trams will be added in Phase II to make a total of 25 operating trams. More info
