The China Railway Construction Corporation (CRCC) and National Projects and Construction (NPC) joint venture (JV) was awarded a contract to build 15 tunnels totalling 16km through the Hajar Mountains for the 145km Package D, which will connect the Fujairah and Khorfakkan ports with the rail network at the Dubai-Sharjah border. The joint venture is also building 35 bridges and 32 underpasses.
The 1.8km T1 tunnel was built through difficult geological conditions, with softer blasts required to ensure stability. CCECC says the tunnel is the longest rail tunnel in the Middle East.
Tracklaying for two packages of Phase 2 of the Etihad Rail project is underway.
