Saudi awards four station contracts for Haramain
Four stations along 450km route of Al Haramain, one to serve KAEC
The construction of four stations along the 450km route of the $2.5billion Al Haramain High Speed Train Project has been announced by Saudia Arabian Transport Minister Dr Jubara Al Suraisry at a press conference.
Al Suraisry is also chairman of the Saudi Railways Organisation (SRO). The contract values are $850million, $426million, $772million and $480 million respectively.
The four stations are located at Makkah, Madinah, Jeddah and Rabigh, all in the western part of the Kingdom. The Rabigh station will service the King Abdullah Economic City.
The contracts for the four stations were signed earlier this month with Finance Minister Dr Ebrahim Al Assaf, chairman of the General Investment Fund.
Al Suraisry said the design of the stations will reflect Islamic architecture, as inspired by the region’s historical and cultural legacy.
