Dubai looking up to suspended transport network with China’s Zhong Tang Sky Railway

Agreement is part of Dubai’s efforts to increase the mobility of residents, while also providing affordable mobility solutions

Dubai’s Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) has signed an agreement with the Chinese group Zhong Tang Sky Railway, a leading company in the development of suspended railways, to explore the development of a futuristic suspended transportation network.

A WAM report said that the MoU comes as part of Dubai’s endeavours to find and develop innovative solutions for building a futuristic suspended transport network. It added that the use of this type of transport is aimed at increasing the mobility of people, providing affordable mobility solutions, as well as encouraging community members to use them and to curb traffic congestion.

Abdul Mohsen Ibrahim Younes, CEO of Rail Agency, signed the MoU on behalf of RTA, and Tang Tong, Chairman of Zhong Tang Sky Train, signed on behalf of the Group.

Attendees included Jaber Al Bahandi, Chairman of Centurion Company (The UAE representative of Zhong Tang Sky Railway Group) and Tariq Al Bahandi, Head of Development at Centurion.

“The signing of this MoU is part of RTA’s ongoing efforts to increase public transportation trips to 26 percent by 2030. Realising this objective requires developing advanced futuristic transport systems and improving the sustainable transport network in Dubai to encourage people and visitors to use public transport,” said Abdul Mohsen Ibrahim Younes.

“RTA is aligning its efforts with the national agenda to nurture a sustainable environment in terms of air quality and reliance on clean energy. The ultimate objective is to rank Dubai as the best place for living and business, a destination for visitors, and the smartest and happiest city in the world,” added Younes.

“RTA is signing MoUs with a host of specialist companies in the development of suspended transport systems to identify the technologies used in this sort of mass transit means. We will be able to screen and obtain the best technologies and select the best systems for implementation in Dubai,” he noted.
