One of the most ambitious projects in the world is built in the desert and traverses the entire Arabian Peninsula.
The Gulf Cooperation Council, made up of six rich countries in the Middle East, is building a 2,000-kilometer railway to connect the region in the best way possible.
Crossing the Arabian desert and creating tunnels in the mountains, the challenges of this project are great and fully match its cost. This new railway will connect the Persian Gulf with the Red Sea, with the aim of restructuring the transport sector and reducing CO2 emissions, beginning a new era of economic growth.
The idea for this project was born in 2009 by the leaders of Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, the United Arab Emirates, Qatar, Bahrain and Oman, known to the Gulf Cooperation Council. The production costs of this mega project will be shared between states will range from $ 100 billion to $ 250 billion.
