Last year, Etihad Rail announced it would expand to transport passengers by 2030, with rides between Abu Dhabi and Dubai set to take only 50 minutes.

 Last month, Etihad Rail signed an agreement with Oman Rail to connect Abu Dhabi with Oman.


Currently, the Freight Rail service is operational and is used to transport goods and materials across the emirates, keeping heavy trucks off UAE roads.

The railway will be transporting us across the emirates in no time. The Etihad Rail website claims that the construction of the UAE network is 70 per cent complete. 

While residents of neighbouring communities have begun to hear, train horns sounding from the nearby stations signalling progress.

The Etihad Rail has just announced that Sharjah and Ras Al Khaimah are now connected to the main line. This marks ‘significant progress’ as both of those emirates are now connected to Al Ghail Dry Port.

On Wednesday, September 28, there was an agreement between Etihad Rail and Oman Rail during His Highness Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, President of the United Arab Emirates and Ruler of Abu Dhabi, state visit to Oman.

It’s the news UAE residents, long-time fans of a mini break to Sohar, a weekend in Muscat or a quick jaunt to Salalah, have been waiting for. 


 The Etihad Rail is now connected with Industrial City Abu Dhabi (ICAD).

The railway length is 256 kilometres and requires 47 million hours of work by 13,300 workers to be completed.

The Abu Dhabi to Dubai railway includes 29 bridges, 60 crossings and 137 drainage channels. It is part of the more extensive UAE Railway Programme, which will connect everyone across the seven emirates.
