The Mena region is experiencing a rail boom. From Africa’s first high-speed rail network in Morocco to Oman’s first ever rail scheme, billions of dollars are being invested in rail and metro projects for the first time. Today every country has announced rail or metro plans and in total there are more than $200bn worth rail and metro projects either planned or under way in the Middle East. This translates to more than 33,700km of mainline routes and 3,000km of metro.

The latest market intelligence report from MEED Insight, MENA Rail and Metro Projects 2014 report provides a comprehensive overview of the major rail and metro projects in each country in the region outlining the major drivers, project details, leading contractors and clients, challenges and opportunities. It provides you with information on the entire sector, from existing infrastructure to projects under execution and projects planned.

Several projects made good headway in 2013, most notably the award of $22bn worth of contracts on the Riyadh metro and $8bn worth of deals on the Doha metro scheme. The Doha and Riyadh metro projects are the first of a raft of metro and rail schemes planned in the GCC. New metro networks are planned in Jeddah, Mecca, Kuwait City and Abu Dhabi. The most ambitious project of all is the planned GCC railway which will eventually link all six GCC states from Kuwait City in the north to the Omani capital, Muscat, in the east.
