How has construction progressed on Saudi Arabia’s Riyadh Metro, and when is the project due for completion? Construction Week explains here.
The $23-billion Riyadh Metro has made significant progress in 2018. It is due for a soft launch in 2019, and is expected to be fully operational in 2021. Work on the project’s deep tunnels and bridges is 100% complete, according to a recent Saudi Gazette report, and surface routes are 93% complete.
Construction is under way on more than 250 sites along the route for the metro project. Earlier this month, two operation and maintenance (O&M) contracts were awarded by Arriyadh Development Authority (ADA) to Camco and Flow respectively for Lines 1-2 and 3-6 of the project. Upon completion, Knight Frank explained earlier in 2018, Riyadh Metro’s stations will boost the property valuations of the areas in their surroundings.
In this episode of Construction Week In Focus, Neha Bhatia and Jack Ball, editor and senior reporter of Construction Week, explore how Riyadh Metro has advanced in 2018, and what comes next for the scheme.
