Ajman is planning to establish tram services as part of its transportation expansion, said Shaikh Rashid Al Nuaimi, Chairman of the Ajman Municipality and Planning Department.

In an exclusive interview with Khaleej Times, he said the project is part of a number of development projects worth Dh4.3 billion. The transportation project includes expansion of networks, increasing number of stations and fleets of vehicles.

The development projects also include building four hospitals and expansion of sewage networks, in addition to various tourist projects in Al Zora area, where Marina entertainment project is being executed at a cost of Dh100 million.

Regarding the current economic situation, Shaikh Rashid said that the emirate has sustainable plans and is working on infrastructure projects with focus on improving education and health services. Ajman has been working on a clear plan that contributed in stability of the real estate sector, on which the emirate depends mainly for its revenue.

Shaikh Rashid said the emirate has been successful in reducing traffic jams with ongoing road expansion projects. Still, there is some traffic congestion being experienced at the Rona Roundabout, which will be solved as part of the President’s initiatives aimed at establishing bridges.

He said Ajman has become more attractive for living, with its affordable residential units as well as best services for residence.

The civic body chief pointed out that as part of the Al Zora Project, 5 star hotels and 42 villas will be opened by the end of this year. More info
