From having one of the lowest-density rail networks in the world, the Middle East and North Africa (Mena) is slowly but surely emerging as a top destination for rail investments. Regional governments are promoting some of the most modern rail networks in the world, looking to ramp up investments in the transport infrastructure to build a modern, competitive economy. That is why, despite the drop in oil prices, investment in rail remains a very high priority.
According to MEED analysis, projects worth about $16bn are scheduled to be awarded by the end of 2018, potentially more than double the value of rail contract awards in both 2016 and 2017.

The lion’s share of the planned investment is targeted at mainline and cross-country railway lines to provide freight and passenger transportation capacity from Morocco to the Gulf. But urban rail systems, particularly in the GCC, are a major element of the region’s rail spending plans. Iran has also witnessed significant foreign investments in the rail sector since the lifting of the international nuclear sanctions in early 2016.
