Etihad Rail completes construction of Package A of Stage Two of the UAE railway network

Project covers 139km of track connecting to Saudi border to Al Ghuwaifat

Etihad Rail has announced the completion of construction for Package A of its Stage Two, extending over 139km, and its connection through Al Ghuwaifat on the UAE’s border with Saudi Arabia with Stage One, which extends for 264km from Habshan to Al Ruwais.

This was announced at a virtual meeting of the company’s Board of Directors chaired by Sheikh Theyab bin Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, chairman of the Abu Dhabi Crown Prince’s Court and chairman of Etihad Rail,

A statement from the UAE’s railway authority said this significant step brings the company closer to completing the UAE National Railway Network on schedule.

The statement added that in 2021, “Etihad Rail was successful in reserving 40% of the network’s annual transport capacity, which by the completion of Stage Two will amount to 60 million tons of goods per year. This was achieved through the commercial agreements Etihad Rail has signed including those with Stevin Rock, one of the biggest quarrying companies in the world, Western Bainoona Group, and Al Ghurair Iron & Steel (AGIS).
