Alstrom Citadis 402 7 section tram No. 008 approaches Dubai Marina Mall Station on 23rd August 2016. The tramway runs on elevated track alongside the 14 lane Sheikh Zayed Road at this point. This links the cities on the west coast of the UAE from Abu Dhabi in the south to Ras-al-Khaimah in the north. Known as the Al Sufouh Tramway this is only the fourth tramway in the world to be powered by a ground-based electric supply system which can clearly be seen in the centre of both tracks.
