About Etihad Rail (www.etihadrail.ae)
Etihad Rail was established in June 2009 under Federal Law no. 2, with a mandate to manage the development, construction and operation of the UAE’s national freight and passenger railway network. The railway network will link the principal centres of population and industry of the UAE, and will form a vital part of the planned GCC railway network across the GCC.
 
Etihad Rail has successfully completed Stage One of the network.  Stage One has been operational and delivered on schedule and within budget. The route spans 264 km, transporting sulphur from sources at Shah and Habshan to the export point at Ruwais. In addition to the agreement with the Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (ADNOC) for the transport of sulphur from Habshan and Shah to Ruwais, Etihad Rail is also in advanced discussions with key customers and partners.

Built to international standards, Etihad Rail’s state-of-the-art network will span approximately 1,200 km, acting as a catalyst for economic growth and sustained social development. Upon completion, the railway will redefine logistics and transport in the region, providing a modern, safe, efficient and sustainable mode of transport that will connect all regions of the UAE to its neighbouring GCC countries.
