Large Rail project set for UAE

Recommended Posts

Emirates Railways, the country's future national rail network, will be part of a GCC-wide rail network currently under study.

It will be more than 700 km-long and will link Abu Dhabi with Dubai, Sharjah, Ras Al Khaimah and Fujairah in the east with Ruwais and Ghowaifat in the west.

Such railways will consolidate the role played by the UAE in an endeavour to make it the logistic services' Eastern gateway to the Middle East and global markets.

The move follows Dubai's effort to establish the region's first urban light rail system and comes at a time when the feasibility of a GCC-wide rail network is being studied by governments of the six-nation block that is planning to integrate the economies by 2010.

Also, The private sector is expected to play a major role in the construction and maintainance of the project. It is eco-friendly and exceptionally fuel efficient. It will create extra opportunities within the nation for moving goods. There are so many plus points that eventhough it will need huge investment, but it is a step in the right direction.

It's great because you can ride a train from hopefully Europe, and you will be able to come to any Mid-East Country.
