Flood drainage of Haramain railway is tested

Flood drainage of Haramain railway is tested :The Saudi Railways Organization (SRO) has started checking the water and flood drainage systems of the Haramain high-speed railway project to sort out any technical problems before its launch.

“The first stage of civil works and the Madinah to Rabigh line are 90 percent complete,” an SRO source told a local newspaper recently. The contractors also delivered the second stage of the project that includes laying down rail lines and installing communications and signaling systems, which would be checked mid-2015, the source said.

Al-Rajhi consortium had won the civil works of the first stage of the project estimated at over SR6.7 billion, which would be completed by the end of 2014.

The second phase of the project, worth SR30 billion, was awarded to a consortium consisting of Al-Shoula group, a Saudi company, and several Spanish companies. The firms are responsible for railway tracks, communication systems, signals, electrification of lines, operations, maintenance for 12 years and establishing a training center.

“The technical and supervisory committees conduct tours on a weekly and monthly basis. The government is monitoring the performance of contractors with periodic reports and field visits,” said Transport Minister Jabara Al-Seraisry.

He said work is taking place at several intersections in Jeddah, including on King Abdullah Street, Palestine Street, Tahlia Street and Airport Road.
