Oman has reportedly decided to delay its rail project connecting the Sultanate with the rest of the Gulf countries to meet the schedule of other Gulf countries.
Mohammed Al Shuaili, director of the Minister of Transport and Communications office, was quoted as saying, “The ministry of transport and communications has not cancelled the project but only delayed it as other Gulf countries have decided to stop work on the project.”
In January, Etihad Rail – the developer and operator of the UAE’s $11bn national rail network – said it has suspended the tendering process for stage two of the project. More info
