UAE – Etihad Rail test running is started : State-backed Etihad Rail tested the first freight train in the UAE this week, the company’s commercial director, John Lesniewski, told Arabian Business’ sister magazine Logistics Middle East.

“I’m proud to announce that our first trains ran yesterday [Sunday],” Lesniewski said at the annual Leaders in Logistics Conference on Monday.

“We now have, in the UAE, locomotives, on tracks, on the ground. And our team of consultants, planners, engineers, construction specialists, procurement specialists has accomplished all of this in little over 18 months. That is a miracle.

“It is really a miracle to build all this track in 18 months, so we are really proud of this day,” he added.

The firm is conducting dynamic testing on sections of track between Mirfa and Ruwais.

Etihad Rail, which is tasked with building a $10bn railway network in the UAE, expects to start operations on the Shah-Habshan-Ruwais freight rail link by the end of the year.
