The MENA region is one of the world’s fastest-growing markets for rail projects. There are plans to build more than 33,712 km of mainline routes and 3,004 km of Metro, monorail and tram lines. 2015 will see several huge rail and metro projects awarded.
The combination of rapidly growing population and severe traffic congestion necessitated the building of an urban rail system to provide additional public transportation capacity, relieve motor traffic and provide infrastructure for additional development. Looking into the tremendous growth and infrastructure development, it has become very important for rail urbanization to be implemented and executed in the MENA region. For this one reason alone, BE Summits launches the MENA Metro Rail Symposium.
