Gulf States are currently spending more than US$100 billion on railway projects.
Railway projects are known to require high capital investments in the beginning but relatively low operation cost thereafter. The longer the transportation distance and the larger the transported material, the more cost-effective railway transportation becomes.
Railway transportation has several advantages over other means of transportation. Railways provide the ability to move large volumes of materials and passengers, according to a regular schedule and over long distances. It eases congestion and increase the appeal of public transport.
