Saudi Arabia has awarded a contract to develop the $506.6m Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) project to Turkey-based Yuksel.

The project will include the construction of 34 stations, 1,353 community bus stops and six pedestrian bridges in Riyadh, according to Saudi’s Arab News.

Bus terminals, passenger hubs, parking facilities and maintenance depots will also be built as part of the project, which will mark the completion of the city’s transport infrastructure plan once it concludes.  

Emin Sazak, Yuksel chairman and CEO, said: “It’s a challenging project for which we’ll deploy 4,500 workers at the peak level.

“Well-planned and delivered BRT systems with clean buses can provide metro-quality service at a fraction of the cost. This will generate an enormous shift from private cars to public transportation in Riyadh.”

The project is promoted and financed by Ar-Riyadh Development Authority (ADA), the organisational, planning, executive and coordinating body responsible for the development of Riyadh.
