The number of projects across the MENA region is down marginally in 2018

15 November 2018

The number of projects that have entered construction can be seen to be marginally lower in 2018 than in 2017 across the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region. Growth in the region remains strong however with more projects entering construction in 2018 than in 2016.

Growth in 2017 was primarily driven by the expansion of Istanbul’s metro system. The network saw five new lines totalling 110km of track enter construction in 2017, all of which are due to be completed by the year 2021.
