Isn't freedom to let other people live how they wanted to?!
or that excluded to middle eastern!
we live based on our religion and culture and guess what we are totally happy.
and I don't wanna hear that from people that do (swapping couples or wives for sex, have sex with animals, group sex, drugs, etc.)
Do you really think your life is mentally healthy!
and we don't wanna prove from you on our development since it meant to us citizen of Saudi Arabia.
You want to give us respect and contribute here your welcome otherwise just ignore the thread.
and remember that you freedom, rights, and culture ends in your country border and not meant for all countries!!!

I don't think anyone considers most of those things regular things to do (I can only tick off two of those ) I don't see why that is not mentally healthy. I would put money on these things going on just as much in Saudi too, with the locals too, not the expat community.

Freedom and rights are for all countries, for all humans, they are not a western plot to destroy all other cultures. To think that one country should have different rights to another one is an absurd notion. What if somebody doesn't believe the same religion, which as a belief system you can't force on someone?

Riyadh - Dammam high speed line study contract awarded
03 Sep 2014



SAUDI ARABIA: A consortium led by Spanish firm Consultrans signed a 6·6m riyal contract to study options for the construction of a Riyadh – Dammam high speed line on September 2.

The 10-month study commissioned by Saudi Railways Organisation will consider routes, technical requirements, costs, demand forecasts and potential revenue for a line suitable for electric trains running at between 300 km/h and 350 km/h.

SRO envisages that a journey time of 1½ h could grow the passenger market and encourage air passengers to travel by rail, doubling ridership compared to the existing passenger service of five through trains each way per day taking 4 h 20 min to cover 450 km.

According to SRO President Mohamed Khaled al Suwaiket, the high speed study does not affect ongoing works to upgrade the two existing lines between Riyadh and Dammam to increase freight capacity and cut passenger journey times to around 3 h.

new high speed rail project in saudi arabia


Quote:
Saudi Arabia plans second high-speed line



SAUDI Railways Organisation (SRO) has invited bids from consultants to study options for a high-speed line between the capital Riyadh and the Gulf port of Dammam.


The new line would have a design speed of 350km/h to enable trains to operate at a maximum of 320km/h. Options to be studied include building the line parallel to the existing main line via Hofuf or along a more direct alignment connecting the airports serving the two cities, with the possibility of extending the line into each city centre to access the existing stations. SRO says it is keen to minimise land acquisition in urban areas.
A journey time of between 1h 30min and 1h 45min is envisaged. This compares with the 4h 20min journey time on the existing 449km line. However, SRO is currently upgrading the existing line by doubling the track and increasing the line speed from 140km/h to 160km/h initially and 180km/h by the end of 2014. This will enable SRO to achieve a 3h 10min journey time.

SRO currently operates five round trips a day between Riyadh and Dammam, mainly using a fleet of eight diesel trains supplied by CAF. Another four trains are under construction which should enter service by late 2014, and SRO is out to tender for an additional four trains. SRO plans to step up the service to a two-hourly frequency.

In addition, SRO is evaluation 20 bids for a contract to double the track on the 390km Riyadh – Haradh – Hofuf freight line.

Saudi Arabia's first high-speed project, the 450km Haramain line linking Medina, Jeddah and Mecca in the west of the country, is under construction and is scheduled to open in 2016.

No, but... is this serious?? I can understand the HS line between Mekkah and Medinah and I can understand the freight corridor between Riadh and Damman that is already planned. Here, I can see an economic rationale. But...

...adding HS tracks to the latter corridor? To me that sounds a bit like "prestige hunting" rather than a sound infrastructure project.

They are very small countries.

As Riyadh-Dammam line, SRO wants to double the current 5 services per direction. Does not seem much.
Also want to renew the current line at a time, does not seem very logical.

railway between saudi arabia and bahraine

New Bahrain-Saudi causeway to cost $5bn, says minister





By AFP | Manama
Monday, 8 September 2014
A second causeway linking Bahrain with Saudi Arabia and providing a route for a regional railway network being built by Gulf monarchies will cost about $5 billion, a minister said.

"The cost of the causeway will be roughly $5 billion (3.9 billion euros)," Bahrain's Transport Minister Kamal bin Ahmed told AFP on the sidelines of a two-day business conference, adding that it will be "part of the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) railway network."

Details of the project for the causeway -- which will be used by vehicles as well as freight and passenger trains -- will be discussed at a joint meeting next month, he said.

"We have almost finalised the routes of the causeway," he told participants in the conference.

Teams from both countries are "still working on other technical issues including financing," especially on how to get the private sector involved, the minister said.

Ahmed however said no date has been fixed for the start of the project. "We need it to start soon," he said.

Gulf neighbors Bahrain and Saudi Arabia have been linked since 1986 by a 25-kilometre (16-mile) causeway used by several million people every year.

Saudi King Abdullah announced the plan for the new causeway last week in a meeting with King Hamad, saying the new link will be named after Bahrain's monarch.

The GCC railway network, approved by the Gulf leaders in 2004, is expected to be completed by 2017 although progress has been very slow amid political differences between the six-nation alliance which groups Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar, the United Arab Emirates and Saudi Arabia.

The regional network is planned to stretch over a distance of 2,000 kilometers (1,243 miles) and will cost an estimated $20 billion.

Actually, if there's any HSR project in the region that's commercially viable this is it. You have 2 of the largest metros in the region (population and economy) and a perfect distance for HSR. If you include a potential through route extension to Bahrain, you have a ridership catchment of over 10 million people in a line under 500km distance
