Jubail tenders to be awarded this year

The three signal and telecommunications tenders for railways connecting Jubail with Damman, Ras Al Khair and Wa’ad Al Shamal should be tendered immediately, said Bashar K. Al Malek, Projects Director, Saudi Railway Company (SAR).

Pre-qualification for tender bidding for the construction of the Riyadh-Jeddah railway link is expected to start between the first and second quarter of 2015.


The new Riyadh-Jeddah single track line will be approximately 950 km long. Proposed conjunction for this line is from a point about 30 km from Riyadh on the old line (in order to avoid built up areas). It will then head towards the Riyadh-Jeddah expressway and run, for a greater part, parallel to it until Al Muwayh al Jadid. From this point onwards it will pass north of Makkah and Taif.
