Railroad to link Kuwait and Iraq
The London-based al-Hayat newspaper reported recently on a project to build a railroad connecting Kuwait with Baghdad and Umm Qaser Port. The paper noted that investments in this project will reach $400 million and that the Kuwaiti government decided to create an incorporated company to be responsible for implementing this project.
This railroad will link the Suweih, Sha’abiyya, and Doha ports of Kuwait with the capital city of Iraq. It will also help relieve the pressure on the ports of Basra and Umm Qaser.
