Qatar’s railway projects largest among GCC countries

Qatar railway10Qatar’s railway projects are estimated to top all GCC countries. (Image source: blue_quartz/Flickr)Qatar's railway projects are estimated to be the most ambitious of all GCC countries, with an estimated US$41.8bn in the pipeline

Across the GCC as a whole, as much as US$149bn worth of rail projects are in the planning or construction stages over the next decade, according to a report by Zawya.

Among the GCC countries, Qatar remains one of the most buoyant and has many ongoing projects at various stages of development, many of which are scheduled to be ready in time to host the Qatar 2022 FIFA World Cup.

Rail projects include national and inner-city railway systems, some of which will ultimately converge to form part of the ambitious GCC Rail project, which aims to unify the region and enhance connectivity and freight movement.

The project is expected to generate significant employment for GCC nationals, promote social integration and economic development, advance the GCC initiatives on the common market and facilitate trade.

It will also support building national railway industries in the GCC member states, alleviate congestion and reduce maintenance costs on roads.

This impending expansion is reflected in the rise in participation from rail related service providers and Qatar-based business at The Big 5, taking place from 5-8 November at Dubai World Trade Centre.

The Big 5 is one of the largest event for the building and construction industry in the Middle East and will host some of Qatar’s key industry players.

“With numerous multi-billion projects related to the GCC rail underway, The Big 5 exhibition offers an ideal platform for global and local companies to tap on new regional business opportunities and benefit from specialised services, product offerings and partnerships,” said event director, Andy White.
