The $2.4bn Fourth Ring Road project in Makkah is now more than 75% complete, local media reported.

Makkah Gov. Prince Khaled Al-Faisal, who inspected the site on 9 August, said the project will ease congestion and pedestrian traffic in Makkah and neighbouring Hajj sites, according to Saudi’s Arab News.

The road, which is more than 65 kilometres long and 100 metres wide, is being supervised by the region’s development authority and implemented by the Makkah Secretariat.

It will extend from Sail Road to Awali, and from there to Batha Quraysh, Al-Akishiyya and Umm Al-Kattad through Al-Hada Road, Jeddah Expressway, Old Jeddah Road, Umm Al-Joud, and Al-Umrah on Madinah Road.

The road is being integrated with the Makkah road network, bus, and train services.
