UAE: Dubai’s Roads & Transport Authority has called tenders for a feasibility study on extending the city’s tram line.

The 10·6 km first phase of the tramway opened in November 2014 and serves 11 stops between Al Barsha’a and Dubai Marina. Phase 2 would be a short extension to Mall of the Emirates station on the metro Red Line, and Phase 3 would extend the line northeast along Jumeirah Beach Road to 2nd December Street.
