The project is being developed as part of the Kuwait National Rail Road System.

One of the country’s key infrastructure development initiatives, it will serve freight and passengers and will have a speed of 120 km per hour (kmph) for the regional lines and a 200 kmph high speed.

The project will be implemented under the build, operate, and transfer (BOT) scheme.-TradeArabia News Service
