A project rail boom within the transport sector in the Middle East and North Africa is expected to materialise in the next three years as the region allocates more than $250bn worth of investments in various rail projects.

The region has one of the lowest density rail networks in the world, with just under 34,000 km of track over a landmass of 15 million square km.

The boom in the construction of railway infrastructure is expected to double the track network to 67,000 km and create huge opportunities for local and international businesses – from consultancy and design services to track, rolling stock and communication systems. More info
