and the "third" possibility... of there being only 2 disjointed lines connected to the Metro.

(this option seems likely as the latest updated from euphrates shows).

and some more details on funding...

http://www.railwaybulletin.com/2013/...ban-metro-line

Quote:
The first phase will be 25 km long

Iraq has signed contract with Alstom on the construction of an above-ground urban metro line in the Iraqi capital, Baghdad.

The project aims to ease congestions in Baghdad and provide a fast means of transport between the capital's most densely populated neighbourhoods, said Baghdad governor, Salah Abdulrazzaq.

According to the deal, Alstom is to design the project and implement its first phase "which will cost 1.5bn US dollar," Abdulrazzaq said.

The first phase will be 25 km long and will involve building of 14 stations. Iraq will pay the project's cost to French firm in instalments over a six-year period. Approximately 50-60% of the cost of the 25km high-level track will be funded by a French government loan with the remainder financed through a low-interest loan from a French government-run bank to be repaid over 20 years.

which means just the first phase is $1.5Bn. horrendously expensive as per the usual Iraqi "standard".

Reposting what hassain21 posted.

Iraq and Alstom sign MOU on the Baghdad Elevated Light Rail.

Lets wait and see if anything actually happens.

I prefer it that way over subway. It would look better for Baghdad. It gives a taste of modernity.

here's a nice article outlining why "light rail" is so useless in principle for Baghdad.

what we really need in Baghdad is RER like trains...




naturally this has a higher initial expense... but it has the capacity to actually meet both current and future demand.

Elevated light rail for Baghdad would simply be a "vanity" project. The idiots are looking at trains suitable for Grenoble or goteborg... and applying it to a city with 8M+ people! madness!

It should use the budget allocated to the plague in the north of our country for those expenses. I totally agree though...light rails and Baghdad's population doesn't go well together.
