The Ministry of Transport announced that it is close to signing the implementation, construction and purchase contract for the suspended train project in Baghdad, with the consortium of the French (Alstom) and the Korean (Hyundai).
The spokeswoman for the ministry, Shatha Radhi, said that the suspended train is one of the most important projects that the ministry seeks to activate in order to contribute to solving the traffic jam crisis occurring in the capital, by adopting advanced mass transit systems. Usually, the project is a cultural and aesthetic landmark that will be added to Baghdad.
She stated that the project, which is an integrated transportation system, will provide great services to most areas with a high population density, passing through the outskirts of Baghdad, to the vital centers inside the capital, explaining that the proposed 22-km-long suspended train network will start from the headquarters of the central railway station in the Al-Alawi area in central Baghdad, to the farthest point from the Al-Shaab region, and then to the outskirts of the capital's border with Diyala Governorate.
Rady indicated that the ministry will be responsible for the implementation of the project, as it is concerned and competent in the transport and railway sector in the country, noting that the suspended train is included in the projects and service plans that the ministry has attached great importance to, as it will effectively solve the transportation problem in the capital.
A spokeswoman for the Ministry of Transport confirmed, in the same context, that the ministry will conclude an implementation, construction and purchase contract with the consortium of the French railway company (Alstom) and the Korean (Hyundai) Engineering and Construction, as soon as its allocations are released within the recently approved general budget, indicating that her ministry will proceed to remove all obstacles to achieve a safe path for the train and develop appropriate solutions for sewage networks, water pipes, electricity and communications cables that stand in the way of its path.
