Rail Link Between Kuwait And Saudi
A draft agreement between Saudi Arabia and Kuwait regarding a railway link project between the two countries has been authorized by the cabinet of Saudi Arabia.
A report published in the Arab Times in early May 2023 quoted local Arabic language newspaper Al Qabas as saying that French transportation consultancy Systra had been selected to conduct a feasibility study for a high-speed rail link between Saudi Arabia and Kuwait.
Kuwait will also connect to the GCC Railway via Saudi Arabia with its 111-kilometer-long 'Gulf track' extending from its southern Nuwaiseeb port, on the Saudi-Kuwait border, to Shadadiya. Stage 1 of Kuwait Railway Network project includes Gulf track, for which a study and design tender will be released 15 January 2023 with a closing date of 30 May 2023.
