Kuwait has cut a long way in removing obstacles on the would-be lines of the Gulf railway project, Minister of Public Works and Minister of State for National Assembly Affairs Ali Al-Omair said on Monday.


The project's course in Kuwait has been identified, and will go through cultivated lands whose owners will be compensated, the minister told KUNA during a reception held by the Kuwaiti Consul General in Dubai Theyab Al-Rashidi Al-Omair is taking part in the Middle East Rail 2016 fair that opens on Tuesday.


Removing the obstacles was a major condition for offering the project through the Public-Private Partnership (PPP) program, which is likely to make it easy to find a Gulf investor for the project.
He said that the Public Authority for Roads and Land Transport will monitor the project in Kuwait.
Referring to the two-day Middle East Rail 2016, Al-Omair said it is a chance to get acquainted with latest technologies in the field.
