Inhabitat Â» City of Silk Rail Network to Link Middle East & China
A massive urban masterplan has been approved for Madinat al-Hareer, or City of Silk, in Subiya, Kuwait. With a budget of Â£66 billion ($132bn USD), the project is an ambitious endeavor that will provide a rail network between major Middle East cities and China. Kuwait, Damascus, Baghdad, and Iran are all along the intended railway route, which will link these cities to Israel and China. Boasting a new tower that will become the worldâ€™s tallest, the design for City of Silk will also include numerous recreation and business attractions, including a National Wildlife Sanctuary.
