Abu Dhabi will soon be able to boast a new tram line as construction work is set to begin.

People on flights to Abu Dhabi in the future could have the choice of travelling around the emirate by tram as work on the project looks set to begin.

Spanish consultant company Sener explained to 7 Days that work on the scheme is ready to start, with a 30 km route set to link the north of the city to the city centre.

There will be two lines on completion which will cover around 300 km of track.

These lines will link up downtown Abu Dhabi with Al Sowwah Island, where there will be a new financial district, while the second will connect to Saadiyat Island, which will be home to the new museums currently being planned.

Visitors on flights to Abu Dhabi will be able to look at the artworks houses in the new museums from 2017, when the branches of the Louvre and Guggenheim, as well as the Zayed National Museum, are all set to open.
