In 2009, a national rail company was approved and established in the United Arab Emirates. Etihad Rail will construct a passenger and cargo railway connecting all seven emirates, including a high-speed passenger train between the cities of Abu Dhabi and Dubai. This railway is also planned to link the UAE with neighboring Gulf countries. Construction on the 1,500-kilometer (932-mi) railroad is expected to take place over the next decade.
