Luxembourg transport minister, François Bauch, announced today that plans to extend the Luxembourg Tram network as far as Dubai have been approved.
Work on the extended tram lines is expected to start next year and will continue as far as 2031.
Funding for the tram extension was approved by the government and received extra praise from Prime Minister Xavier Bettel, who regularly enjoys visits to the UAE, with or without travel restrictions.
Based on travel times around Luxembourg City, the total distance travel time is hoped to be less than 3 years between Kirchberg and Central Dubai.
A big surprise this week as authorities discovered several secretly hidden bars, cafes, restaurants and discos this week underneath a number of primary schools across the country.
As covid cases raised steadily among pupils, leading the government to make decisions to close schools, it seems that the new spread of the virus seems to have come from the underground caves hosting the illegal restaurants.
Students as young as 4 have been rumoured to regularly drink in these establishments, prompting an enquiry by the Police.
“It is now clear where this is coming from,” said an education spokesperson. “By shutting down the schools, we can therefore stop the students going into the secret restaurants and stop the spread once and for all.”
