Dubai Tram resumes operations after accident

The link between the Dubai Marina and Palm Jumeirah stations was briefly suspended on Wednesday morning

Dubai Tram services have resumed after the link between the Dubai Marina and Palm Jumeirah stations was suspended on Wednesday morning due to a vehicle collision.

Dubai’s Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) confirmed on Twitter that the tram service between the two areas had been suspended for about an hour after a vehicle crashed into the side of a tram’s coach.

The RTA deployed public buses to commute tram riders between the stations impacted by the service disruption.

Services resumed after the RTA’s technical team managed to remove the vehicle from the tramway.

Dubai has very stringent regulations for motorists with regards to the Dubai Tram.

Jumping the red light at the tramway intersection and causing a traffic accident will lead to fines of between Dhs15,000 to Dhs30,000, along with the suspension of the driver’s licence.

The tram transported over six million users in 2017, compared to 5.4 million in 2016.
