Trains for Bahrain

The Kingdom will follow Dubai’s lead and create a rail network

Bahrain is to spend billions creating a new rail network and better roads. Blueprints include a 180km public transport network comprising trains, a monorail, a tramway and buses.

Hi-tech traffic management equipment is being introduced, to cut fatal accidents on the roads by 30 per cent, within 10 years, it was revealed yesterday.

The monorail alone could cost BD3 billion and studies on how to finance it are already underway, with a completion target of 2030.

Speed radar, CCTV, message signs and a hi-tech traffic management centre will also be brought in to cut fatalities on the roads.
