Work on the Riyadh Metro project is moving at a steady pace with three of the key network lines on track for opening by the end of 2018 or early 2019, said a report, citing the contractor.
Saudi Arabia is in the midst of rapid economic expansion as it looks to develop its non-oil sector. Infrastructure projects include Riyadh Metro, Makkah Metro, Jeddah Airport, Riyadh Airport, apart from power and water and healthcare projects to the tune of $400 billion.
The $23 billion Riyadh Metro will be completed on schedule in 2019 and its budget is ring-fenced, a senior official said on Wednesday, quashing speculation the project could be scaled back or delayed following a slump in Saudi Arabia's oil revenues.
Four international consortia have prequalified for a contract to build a metro network in Riyadh, the High Commission for the Development of Arriyadh announced on August 1. Bids were submitted by a total of 38 consortia.
