Italian contractor Salini Impregilo has announced that the tunnel excavation work along Line 3 of the Riyadh Metro project has been completed.

It is the longest line of the massive rail project commissioned by the Arriyadh Development Authority (ADA) and the end of the work was celebrated in a ceremony involving Riyadh Governor Prince Faisal bin Bandar Al Saud at the Qasr Al Hoqm Downtown Station.
Line 3 runs for 41.58km, starting from the west (near the Jeddah Expressway) and ending in the east (near the National Guard Camp of Khashm El Aam), a statement said. More info
