New U-turns and left turns to open along tramway in Dubai


Located at the intersection of Al Sufouh-Al Gharbi streets between Jumeirah Beach Residence 1 and Jumeirah Beach Residence 2 stations, the opening of the turns will make life easier for motorists.

All left and U-turns were closed ahead of the opening of Dubai Tram in November 2014 to ensure road safety.
The closure of the turns ensured that there were zero tram-related accidents.

According to RTA, the reopening is being done after ensuring that road users are accustomed to the existence and movement of the tram.
This is the third location along the tramway that has seen an opening of left and U-turns this year.
In March, the intersection of Al Sayora-Al Sufouh streets and Al Marsa-Al Sufouh streets at Jumeirah Beach Residence saw the opening of all turns, while in June Al Marsa-Al Sharta streets intersection saw a similar development.
According to Maitha Mohammad Bin Adai, CEO of RTA’s Traffic and Roads Agency, a committee of specialists was set up and an international consultant was appointed to draw up a comprehensive plan to realise the Tram/Roads Safety Strategy.
“The plan encompasses organisational procedures encapsulated in 15 strategic recommendations integrated in a five-year plan covering programmes, procedures and initiatives undertaken in collaboration with strategic partners with the aim of achieving zero accidents level in the operation of the Dubai Tram by 2020,” said Bin Adai.
