The new line is due to open by the end of 2014. It includes 11 air-conditioned stations and connects destinations such as the Burj Al Arab Hotel area, Dubai Media City, the Marina and the metro. In a second project phase, the line is planned to be extended up to approximately 9 miles.

Alstom is responsible for the design, integration and supply of this turnkey tramway project, which includes the supply of Citadis trams, track laying, signaling, communications systems, integrated operation control center, platform screen doors and ticketing system.

The trams for the city of Dubai are designed and assembled at Alstom’s La Rochelle plant in France. The company will also be responsible for the maintenance of the transport system for a period of 13 years.
