The industry of the rail in Dubai is now expanding towards a new offer to create a line between Abu Dhabi and Dubai by the company known as Etihad Rail work. The company has been awarded by the government this project which will be considered as one of the greatest that they achieved through their time in Dubai. This new line will have a total cost of Dh4.4 billion being one of the most expensive projects for the company.
This project is the 2nd and 3rd package of the second stage of the UAE rail line that was agreed upon years ago. The 2nd package known as package B is a line that run for a total distance of 216 KM while the 3rd package known as package C will be shorter with a distance of only 94 KM. They both serve the biggest line which was known to move from Ghuweifat to the Port of Fujairah on the eastern coast with a total distance of 605 km.
This was commented on by Shaikh Theyab Bin Mohammad Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Chairman of Etihad Rail by saying the following, “Etihad Rail will sustain the growth of our transport industry and freight carriage sector throughout the UAE, as railway systems are one of the most important means of transport on which countries depend to achieve their economic and social objectives.”
More details are yet to be obtained on the project and its end date as the deal moves forward.
