Regional rail line could be extended to Yemen

Doha: A proposed $10bn rail network that will run the length of the GCC countries could be extended to Yemen.

Originally the proposed 2,177 km rail link was due to go from Kuwait to Oman when completed in 2018. Stops along the way include Kuwait City and the Saudi port of Dammam. Now, a feasibility study is underway to look at adding a further 1,400 km of track to run to Yemen. [08/01/14]
