North-South railway seen as GCC link to Europe

09 October 2010

Saudi transport minister has said the North-South railway project, currently under construction in the kingdom, is set to become a key component in a regional rail network linking the GCC with Europe via Turkey, Arab News has reported. "The North-South railway will start from our border with Jordan, connecting a number of cities in the kingdom to Riyadh and linking up to the existing railway to Dammam," Jabara Al-Seraisry said. "Syria and Jordan also have a rail network connected to Turkey, which in turn is constructing a railway to Europe. This means that we can connect the kingdom to Europe via these countries."
