Riyadh Metro contract

Riyadh Metro contract :WS Atkins plc (“Atkins”) has been awarded a £75m contract as lead designer for three of the six lines of Saudi Arabia’s transformational new Riyadh Metro, the largest public transportation project in the world.

Atkins will lead a design joint venture with Spanish consultancy Typsa for the FAST consortium (comprising FCC, Samsung, Alstom, Strukton and Freyssinet), which is responsible for metro lines 4, 5 and 6, representing just over a third of the total track.

FAST’s design and build package, awarded by the Arriyadh Development Authority, includes 25 stations, two depots and seven park and ride car parks, with a total capital cost of approximately £5bn. Atkins will draw on a multidisciplinary team of around 200 specialist staff from its offices in Riyadh, the UAE, Bangalore, Hong Kong and the UK.

Prof Dr Uwe Krueger, chief executive officer, said: “Riyadh Metro is a landmark project which will raise standards of living and support long term sustainable development throughout the city, acting as a catalyst for further investment in all aspects of the public realm and built environment.

“We are one of the few organisations in the world with the breadth and depth of technical expertise and regional market experience to deliver a project of such scale and complexity. Our track record on other major metro programmes in the region, as well as our work on projects such as King Abdulaziz International Airport in Jeddah and the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games, was a key factor in our appointment.”
