Emirates' new mega-project: desert railway

United Arab Emirates boasts the world's tallest building, a man-made island in the shape of a palm and is about to take its next ambitious step - linking cities by rail over the desert. UAE's Union Railway plans a $US11 billion and 1500 km railway project across the UAE estimated by 2017. The project will be phased over several years. In the end, the railway will connect the UAE to Saudi Arabia via Ghweifat city in the West and Oman via Al Ain in the East.
