Upon commission by Jordan’s Ministry of Transport in 2008, Dar al-Handasah completed a series of geological and geotechnical engineering work as well as bridge and tunnel works for the railway network in Jordan in 2009.
Dar accomplished a topographic survey, a subsoil investigation, a preliminary engineering design and an environmental impact assessment for the railway network in Jordan.
The network includes a main line and spurs/links with a total length of approximately 1,000 km. The project consists of a single-track platform suitable for a standard gauge track, running North-South and East-West across Jordan with train speeds of 160 km/h for passengers and 120 km/h for freight. The route passes through 5 tunnels having a total length of 18 km, 24 viaducts totalling 18 km, 118 wadi bridges, and more than 200 overpasses/underpasses with all drainage facilities. The project also includes 11 terminals and all electromechanical systems for tunnels and other project components.
