Tram plan for Beach Road
A tram system along Jumeirah Beach Road is being planned by the Dubai Roads and Transport Authority
A tram system along Jumeirah Beach Road is being planned by the Dubai Roads and Transport Authority (RTA).
The system is likely to run from the Burj Al Arab to Union House, on Port Saeed Road, and will be integrated with the Dubai Metro and the Palm Jumeirah monorail.
“We’re currently ‘sounding out’ consultants to study the possibility of a tram system, but it is still very much at the conceptual stage,” said an RTA spokesperson. “The whole idea is to create more of a tourist hub, as well as capture the ‘ridership’ in that area.”
