The Network

Connecting the UAE to the GCC

Built to international standards, the railway will link the principal centres of trade, industry, manufacturing, production, logistics, population and all the major import and export points of the United Arab Emirates as well as form an integral part of the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) railway network.

The railway network is being built in stages. Stage One has been fully operational since January 2016, transporting up to 22,000 tonnes of granulated sulphur each day from Habshan and Shah to Ruwais on behalf of ADNOC.
Important milestones have now been achieved on Stage Two with full funding agreed, agreements signed with ports and industrial complexes, and Design and Build contracts awarded for the packages from Ghuweifat to Fujairah.

Stage Two will extend across the United Arab Emirates from the border with Saudi Arabia at Ghuweifat, connecting the Emirates via Abu Dhabi, KIZAD, Khalifa Port, Jebel Ali Port, Dubai, Sharjah, Ras al-Khaimah and thence to Fujairah on the UAE’s east coast.
