Rapidly-urbanising Middle East countries need to overcome rising levels of traffic congestion and pollution.

Rail projects – especially metros and trams – will be essential for carrying large numbers of people over long distances quickly, efficiently and cost-effectively, and enhancing economic growth and mobility.

The region recognises the opportunity, with the Middle East spending $200bn on rail by 2030, according to a 2017 industry report.

For example, the Riyadh Metro in Saudi Arabia, one of the world’s largest urban transport projects, will leverage innovations such as automatic train signalling to reduce headways to 90 seconds, and energy recovery that can reinvest braking energy into the electrical network.
