Work is underway to implement the project soon. 10 international companies have submitted tenders. It has been decided to select the best company out of this. The company is given 12 months for detailed study and 30 months for implementation.
The length of GCC rail is 2,117 km. The train starts from Kuwait and passes through Oman, Bahrain, Qatar and UAE and ends at Muscat, Oman. This is how the track is prepared. Its works are progressing now. The maximum speed will be 200 km per hour. Passenger and freight trains will be serviced through it.
There will be major changes in the price of goods once the trail transport starts in the Gulf countries. Travel and cargo transportation will be easy. The number of vehicles including trucks on the road will be reduced and the large vehicles on the road will be restricted. There will be big changes as freight costs come down. Carbon pollution and traffic congestion will be reduced and road accidents will be reduced. Areas adjacent to railway tracks will all be developed. Facilities like road and metro will be arranged here. Travel will be easier for those in GCC countries. Job opportunities will increase in many places. It is decided to bring big development projects.
