The first Al Sufouh tramcar will arrive in Dubai on December 11

Mattar Al Tayer, the chairman and executive director of the Roads and Transport Authority (RTA), told state news agency WAM that production of the trams at the factory in France was 30 per cent complete.

Each tram is 44 metres long and will accommodate about 300 passengers. Like the Dubai Metro, the tram will have a First Class (Gold Suite), a cabin designated for ladies and children and a Silver Class car.

"Al Sufouh Tramway extends 14.6km alongside Al Sufouh Road, and the initial phase envisages the construction of a 10.6km-long track starting from the Dubai Marina and stretching up to the Tram Depot near Dubai Police Academy," said Adnan Al Hammadi, chief executive of RTA's Rail Agency. "The tram network will comprise 17 passenger stations, 11 of which are covered under phase one, and spread across activity and population density areas along the tramway." The first phase of the tram project is scheduled for completion in the last quarter of 2014.
