Lux Tram to be extended to Dubai

Luxembourg transport minister, Fran├žois 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.
