Etihad Rail posted stunning images of the Al Bithnah Rail Bridge in Fujairah, which spans more than 600 meters and is 40 meters above the earth, on social media.
A remarkable view of the Al Bithnah Rail Bridge in Fujairah, unmatched by any other, Etihad Rail wrote in a message attached to the video on X, the previous Twitter platform.
As the tallest building on the quickly expanding train network, it will be crucial in enhancing commerce ties between Fujairah and the other Emirates.
Forming a majestic figure in Fujairah’s landscape, the remarkable structure was constructed over the course of 19 months by over 250 people using roughly 10,000 cubic meters of concrete, 3,500 tons of steel reinforcement, and numerous concrete beams. It runs along lush green spaces, mountains, homes, and the highway.
It is one of several bridges scattered throughout the extensive network, which also includes the sea bridge that allows trains to access Abu Dhabi’s Khalifa Port and the Al Qudra Bridge in Dubai. The transportation link demonstrates the scope of the UAE’s goals for the significant infrastructure project.
According to Etihad Rail, it will be crucial for facilitating trade between Fujairah and the other United Arab Emirates regions. The network released a video last week showing the behind-the-scenes action at Etihad Railway Station, where freight trains are loaded at Fujairah Port.
Due to its strategic location in the Strait of Hormuz, which links East and West and facilitates the movement of products to the Indian subcontinent and East Africa, Fujairah Port is the ideal site for Etihad Rail’s freight terminal. This enhances commodities movement, worldwide supply chain efficiency, and market relationships.
An image of the Al Wathba Bridge, a crucial piece of infrastructure on the vast rail network that allows trains to cross the E22 Abu Dhabi – Al Ain expressway, was posted by Etihad Rail in June.
Operating since February, the Etihad Rail freight network connects all seven logistical centers and emirates. When the network is finished, it should cover 1,200 kilometers, compared to its current length of roughly 900 km. The operator’s fleet of 1,082 wagons can carry a variety of goods, including construction materials and shipping containers, and freight trains have a top speed of 120 km/h.
A passenger service is also being planned by Etihad Rail, however the service’s launch date is still pending.
