ABSTRACT
The article reports that a wave of huge railway projects is set to transform the Gulf region's economy, despite the global recession, which has placed all major infrastructure projects in the balance. Dubai has opened the first phase of the city's metro project. In 2010 the Gulf Cooperation Council's first new heavy rail line will open. The first phases of Saudi Arabia's North-South minerals railway are scheduled for completion in 2010, opening swift freight routes to the Gulf coast.
