UAE to complete rail link from Fujairah to Saudi border by end of 2022 – The National

The UAE plans to complete its national railway segments from Fujairah to Al Ghuwaifat on the border of Saudi Arabia by the end of 2022 as it seeks to boost its economic competitiveness and reduce carbon emissions, Suhail Al Mazrouei, Minister of Energy and Infrastructure, has said.

“We will be completing the linkage from Fujairah to Ghuwaifat on the borders with Saudi Arabia by the end of next year,” Mr Al Mazrouei told The National on the sidelines of the Middle East Rail exhibition in Dubai on Tuesday.

Last month, Etihad Rail said that construction work for the 139-kilometre package A of stage two and its connection through Al Ghuwaifat with stage one, which extends 264 kilometres from Habshan to Al Ruwais, was completed two months before schedule.
