After paving its way through the Al Maha Forest Of Abu Dhabi, Etihad Rail is back with another scenic route. Now functioning, Dubai’s longest train bridge. The Al Qudra bridge, the biggest in the Emirate’s major system, was featured in photos supplied by Etihad Rail. The track, which crosses Al Qudra Road, will serve as a vital commerce route.

An 86km bike track can be found in Al Qudra, which also has a collection of artificial lakes. Residents of the surrounding neighbourhoods have already about their joy at seeing trains. The area is always buzzing with activity. You might occasionally glimpse railroads on the tracks if you’re fortunate enough to glance out the window at the correct moment.
The national railway system and the Khalifa port are connected by a 1-kilometre sea bridge, which Etihad Rail provided a peek of last week. This decreases shipping costs while increasing the effectiveness of the transportation of products.
