Saudi Arabia’s Riyadh Metro project has exceeded three million safe work hours, according to US-headquartered consultancy, Parsons.

The mass transit project, commissioned by Arriyadh Development Authority (ADA), passed the three million milestone less than a year after it achieved one million safe work hours without lost-time incident (LTI).

As the engineer of record for two Riyadh Metro contracts, Parsons-led consortium, Riyadh Metro Transit Consultants (RMTC), is performing programme and construction management services on the project.

Commenting on the team’s health, safety, and environment (HSE) management activities at Riyadh Metro, Gary Adams, group president of Parsons, said: “I am very proud of the RMTC project team for achieving such a significant safety milestone.

“Their shared commitment and combined efforts have seen the application of stringent HSE policies and standards enforced on site for all key stakeholders,” he added.

The $23bn (SAR86bn) Riyadh Metro development is the largest under-construction mass transit system in the world.

The project is due to complete in 2018, and operations are scheduled to commence in 2019.
