Khalifa to get rail link

Abu Dhabi: Abu Dhabi Ports Company (ADPC) has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Etihad Rail providing the framework to plan an integrated bulk and container railway terminal facility at Khalifa Port as part of the UAE’s national railway network.

The 1,200-km Etihad Rail network will complement ADPC’s transportation and industrial infrastructure linking ADPC facilities, including Khalifa Industrial Zone Abu Dhabi (Kizad) and the adjacent Khalifa Port.

The Etihad Rail network will also form a vital part of a wider GCC railway network, connecting the UAE with Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar and Saudi Arabia.  [27/02/14]
