Middle East Rail and Public Transport Projects - 2012

 

This study from Brooks Market Intelligence Reports provides a concise and up-to-date overview of current principal main line and urban rail projects in 11 countries in the Gulf and Middle East region.
 
Reflecting the situation in mid-2012, the report features individual entries outlining the key characteristics of each project, its planned implementation timescale, its cost where known and its current status. It also identifies the organisations and agencies responsible for implementing each scheme.
 
Projects covered range from ambitious new main line railways such as those in Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates to metro, tram and monorail systems to meet the mobility needs of the fast-growing populations of the region’s principal cities. In this latter sector Dubai has led the way. Now, significant systems are under construction or planned in other countries.  
 
The Middle East is rapidly becoming a key market for rail industry suppliers. This report offers a unique introductory guide to the potential business opportunities generated by the unprecedented levels of investment being created by new rail projects across the region.
