Developers of the Dh 3.2 billion Al Sufouh tram network say it is on target for completion in 2014. The network will feature 13 stops, navigating from Dubai Marina through Media City, towards Knowledge Village. It will also link up with two of the Dubai Metro’s Red Line stops at Jumeirah Lake Towers and Dubai Marina, as well as the Palm Jumeriah’s Monorail.
The tram system is set to make commuting around ‘New Dubai’ even more convenient. The area has risen in huge popularity over the last couple of years, with competitive rents and luxury developments attracting residents from other parts of the city. ‘New Dubai’ encompasses areas such as Dubai Marina, Jumeirah Lake Towers and Tecom, which is also home to the First Group’s trio of hotel apartment developments, including the newly opened First Central.
