The Al Sufouh Tram project is still ongoing but has been hit with financing problems in the past. When it is completed it will tie up with the Palm Monorail at the Nakheel station at the trunk of the Palm Jumeirah. At present the palm Monorail is not linked to any of the other public transport systems in Dubai but will eventually also link with the Dubai Metro.
So it can only be a good thing for the Palm Monorail for the Al Sufouh Tram project to be completed so that the journey on the Monorail is worth undertaking. At present it is really just a tourist attraction but if residents of the Palm Jumeirah can see that they will be able to travel from their homes to say their place of work in Dubai Marina, then it will become much more viable and perhaps at this point ticket prices will reduce and feeder buses will be introduced. At present this does not look likely to happen until 2014 at the earliest.
