Etihad Rail Receives Safety Clearance from UAE Federal Transport Authority

Etihad Rail received safety clearance from the UAE Federal Transport Authority (FTA) to start commercial operations on the 264 km Habshan-Shah-Mirfa-Ruwais line. The rail line begins at the Shah gas fields in the south of UAE and connects to the gas distribution and processing facilities at the port of Ruwais in the north. The rail line will be initially used to transport freight and later passenger services. The project is split into two sections. The first section received the authorization and operates between Shah gas field and the gas processing and distribution facilities at Habshan in the north. It will be used to transport 10,000t of granulated sulphur per day. The project's second stage will connect the railway to Musaffah, Khalifa Port and Jebel Ali port and will see the railway extend to the Saudi and Omani borders. The rail route forms part of the wider UAE network, spanning across 1,200km and the future GCC network, said Etihad Rail, the developer and operator of the country's national rail network. A joint venture of Etihad Rail and German Rail (DB) is responsible for operating and maintaining the railway.
