The project has been accelerated by the Dubai Roads and Transport Authority and opened in 2014.

In 2007, a government official determined that the cost of congestion accounted for 3.15% of GDP. The growth of vehicles is uncontrolled, and the trend will be that by 2020, the number of registered cars will exceed 5 million. The impact is mainly concentrated in the city.

RTA began to solve this problem by updating and expanding the bus fleet, and at the same time introduced low-emission vehicles for taxi operations in Dubai, and the RTA metro system will begin to provide revenue services at the end of 2009.

Consulting firm MVA and its parent company Systra has been participating in Dubai’s public transportation planning since 2004. the principal rail outcome being the Metro project. The tram mode was recommended to match the district’s need for closely spaced stops to service commuter and tourism demand. It also will make RTA’s coverage more comprehensive for wholly public transport journeys.

In April 2008, RTA signed a phase one project delivery contract worth 550 million euros with the ABS consortium in June. ABS is composed of Alstom from France (about 300 million euros of which), Belgian construction company Besix and British multi-sector operator Serco.

Infrastructure

Al Sufouh is the first external tramway line where every station corresponds to a landing door, the system is fully customizable. By adapting to different RTA parameters, including shelter, air conditioning with a natural temperature of around 40 °C increases the attractiveness of customers. Another innovation is the use of the complete Alstom channel less Ground Power (APS) system to drive trams on the ground whilst overhead. 

APS has been used on some Bordeaux tram lines since 2003 and is expected to be used in other French cities such as Anger, Reims, and Orleans, but this is the first widespread implementation of this system. 

As with third-rail pick-up being specified for Dubai Metro, the authorities wished to avoid what is considered as visually intrusive overhead line equipment. To facilitate public transport, both stations, Damac Property and JLT, cross the red pedestrian line via a pedestrian bridge. 

Terminal 9 is connected to the Palm Jumeirah Monorail at 9 Al Sufouh Street on the shores of Palm Jumeirah Island and has an 11-story warehouse with 25 trams, an operations management center, a maintenance workshop, garage, warehouse, and office building. formation. Four pedestrian bridges with roofs with escalators for tram drivers. Two bridges were built on Al Sufouh Street, accessible from both sides of the road. Two other bridges connect Tecum and Dubai Marina Mall across the street.
