Dextra’s Quarterly Newsletter: Connection #27

Etihad Rail is a 1,200-kilometer railway project that will be the first national freight and passenger railway network in the United Arab Emirates (UAE).

The railway project is expected to be a sustainable alternative for freight and passenger transportation throughout the Emirate’s urban and rural areas.

It is expected to carry approximately 16 million passengers and 50 million tons of cargo.

Dextra is currently supplying various engineered solutions for the second phase of rail network construction which includes excavation of the GCC’s longest rail tunnel.

  • Bartec couplers for concrete structure reinforcement.
  • Sonitec tubes for the crosshole sonic logging testing of foundation piles.
  • Steel and GFRP rock-bolts for rock stabilization.
    Umbrella pipes for stabilizing tunnel headings.
