Two of Saudi Arabia's three gigaprojects lead the conversation in latest Construction Week Viewpoint podcast
The Construction Week editorial team breaks down two of the most most read stories for the end of January 2019 in the latest Construction Week Viewpoint podcast episode.
Topping the most-read chart for ConstructionWeekOnline last week was the major milestone recorded in the development of Saudi’s Red Sea Project, which is funded by the kingdom’s Public Investment Fund (PIF) and is a key part of the kingdom’s Vision 2030 strategy.
News of the construction of Saudi’s $500bn (SAR1.9tn) Neom gigaproject – set to start in Q1 2019 – is also discussed by Oscar Rousseau and Jack Ball, deputy editor and senior reporter at Construction Week, in this week's episode.
