Dubai’s al Sufouh tram project is fast approaching the half way mark. According to the Roads and Transport Authority, 43% of the overall project is now complete, while design of the transit system is 95% finished. Developers say the project is well on target for a Phase One completion date of 2014. The 14km tram is set to streamline travel around the New Dubai area, including the Palm Jumeirah, Jumeriah Beach Residence and Dubai Marina, home to The First Group’s latest development, TFG Dubai Marina Hotel. The first phase of the project will cover 10.7km and will see 13 out of a total of 19 stations in operation.
