Great News for Riyadh. Even though the kingdom is a wash with cars and cheap gas, They should be looking to other ways of transport as well.

Hey Riyadhi, is this really on the cards or is it just someone showing his skills with photoshop?

Plans under way for electric train system in Riyadh

The Riyadh Development Authority announced today that the contract to prepare preliminary plans for an electric rail network in the city of Riyadh has been awarded to the French consulting firm Semaly and the Middle East engineering firm ‘Dar Al-Handasah’. The study, which will last for 14 months, will assess the situation on the ground with respect to the social, economic and environmental impact of the project on the capital city as well as technical requirements in terms of locating suitable paths for installing the tracks.

Saudi Arabia has embarked on a major plan to increase its use of rail. In the works is a multibillion-dollar expansion program of the existing Riyadh-Dammam railway line, linking Jeddah and cutting transportation time for containers between Jeddah and Dammam by about one week as compared to sea shipment. Other planned extensions are from Dammam to the industrial city of Jubail via the Eastern Province’s international airport; and from Jeddah to Madinah, via Makkah, and on to the port of Yanbu, which will ease travel for millions of pilgrims.

The project is being studied by the French company Semaly and Dar El-Handasa.
The project study will cost 8 million Riyals.
It will last for 14 months.
There will be 36 stations.
The time difference between two trains is about 7 minutes.
The length of one train will be between 20-42 meters.
The width of the train will be 2.3 meters.
It can transport 2-20 thousand passangers in one hour.
The max speed will be 65 km.

Yes, this is a serious project, not just a study.

They've already modified some of the junctions on Pr. Abdullah St. to allow for the overhead train lines. It's going to be a linear motor driven light railway.

As for people using it, the fact that it goes to KSU is enough to make it popular.
BTW VC15Nets, you've got the orientation wrong. Olaya street is north-south.
