Dubai: Residents of Dubai Marina and Al Sufouh areas can’t wait for the Dubai Tram to begin operations; more than being eager to take a ride, they want relief from the din of construction.
Dubai’s latest public transport system, served by 11 trams and the same number of stations, goes live on November 11.
Trial runs on the tram began in January this year and have been going on ever since. However, with just a month to go for the public service to begin, the frequency of the trials has increased with trams running every 10 minutes through out the day.
As with every major infrastructure project, the residents are obviously feeling the pains of growth.
“The fact that all this humdrum is going to end in a month gives a lot of relief. We understand all these troubles and traffic problems that we have gone through are part of a growth phase that every city goes through and I m happy it will end soon,” Sabir Ali, a resident of Dubai Marina, said.
