The Dubai Metro Yellow Line (or Gold Line?) is a possible route through the Bawadi development in Dubailand, following Al Qudra Road (which connects with Umm Suqeim Road running past Mall of the Emirates and down to the Burj Al Arab). The Yellow Line was first seen mentioned in a MEED report dated 30 June 2006, and then again in April 2008 (unknown source) as being developed and operated by Alstom and Serco (Serco hold the operating contract for the Red Line of the Dubai Metro from 2009-2010). As the Dubailand project seems to be slow, suspended (but we wouldn't like to say abandoned), further progress on the development of the Yellow Line seems unlikely at present.
Other comments indicate that the Yellow Line might have referred to the Jumeirah Palm metro which commenced operations in May 2009 and is eventually expecting to connect to the Dubai Metro Red Line at the TECOM station. However, it is not currently referred to as the Yellow Line.
Another possibility is that the Yellow Line could become the AlSufouh Tram project which is under construction through 2009 and 2010. But we don't have any evidence for that, it was just a thought on our part, prompted by the information about the possible Magenta Line on the Palm Deira being a tram project.
