Kuwait/Middle East: Feasibility study completed for railway

A feasibility study for a railway connecting Kuwait to other Persian Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) countries has been completed, according to a board member with the Public Authority for Roads and Transport, Mohammed Al-Hedeba. Construction would begin in 2018 and finish by 2023. The integrated rail network, to be executed as a public-private partnership, will cost KWD 1bn (EUR 2.95bn USD 3.32bn). It will have 511km of double tracks. The railroad system will serve passengers and freight, with speeds of 120km per hour on regional lines and 200km per hour on others. The tendering on a contract for a consultant to analyze the technical offers is likely to take place soon.
