Madinah to introduce new metro trains and fast bus services by 2021

Saudi Cabinet meeting sets up committee to implement projects



The Madinah transit system will be linked to the city's Haramain Railway Station.

Published: 5 November 2013 - 4 a.m.
By: CW Staff


The Saudi Arabian Cabinet has announced plans to build a smart mass transit system in Madinah over the next eight years.

A weekly meeting of the Cabinet, chaired by Crown Prince Salman, deputy premier and minister of defence, ordered the setting up of a higher committee for the project which will see metro trains and fast bus services introduced into the city.

The committee will be chaired by Madinah Governor Prince Faisal bin Salman, who is also head of the Madinah Development Authority, and will include ministers of municipal and rural affairs, finance and transport.

“The higher committee will supervise the implementation of the project and will set up an executive committee to be headed by the Madinah mayor. The mass transit project should be completed in eight years,” Culture and Information Minister Abdul Aziz Khoja said in a statement received by Arab News.

In July, the Madinah governor commissioned a study into the development of a metro system in the holy city.

Bin Salman held talks with Madinah Development Authority board members and Finance Minister Ibrahim Al-Assaf about the city’s development and ordered a project study into a metro system to be concluded quickly so that it could be presented to higher authorities.

Arab News quoted a senior official who said that the new metro network “is an important component of a comprehensive development plan” for the city, which includes the ongoing expansion of the Prophet's Mosque and the construction of a new Pilgrim City on a 1.6 km² site.

“The transport project will be carried out in phases following international standards,” the official said.

Like the system being developed in Riyadh, the metro planned for Madinah would be linked to a rapid bus network and to park and ride facilities. It would also be directly linked to the new Haramain High-Speed Rail network set to launch next year which links Madinah to Jeddah, King Abdullah Economic City and to Makkah.

Makkah transport system gathers steam



BY IRFAN MOHAMMED
Saturday 8 February 2014


The prestigious Makkah Integrated Transport System is gaining momentum in the holy city as authorities gear up to initiate the SR25.5 billion project by processing tenders which are expected to be finalized soon.

This is the third project in the holy city in addition to the existing Mashaheer train service used during Haj and the proposed high-speed Haram rail service.

The integration of the bus transport system with the train services is the prime feature of the project and will also cover all public transport such as the metro lines, the express bus lines, local buses and the shuttle bus service.

Around 15 international consortiums and some local companies have expressed their interest in the project and the processing of tenders is expected to be finalized in another two months, said Osama Al-Bar, chairman of the executive committee of the Makkah Integrated Transport Authority and mayor of the holy city.

He revealed that in the first phase of the work of the metro train system, two metro lines, one red and one green, with a length of 46 km will be built while 40 percent of the train lines will run through underground tunnels.

The first metro line will be 11 km long with seven stations and will be mostly underground. It will run from the Jamrat region in Mina west via the northern side of the Grand Mosque, King Abdul Aziz Road, and the Haramain high-speed station in Rusaifa to the Makkah-Jeddah Expressway.

The second metro line will be partially underground and will be 33 km long with 15 stations. It will start at Madinah Road north of Taneem Mosque, run south along the western side of the Grand Mosque, and via King Abdulaziz Towers, Azizia Street and Taif-Karr Road to Umm Al-Qura University, according to the mayor.

The first phase is expected to be completed within five years, according to Mohammed Madani, regional director in the Ministry of Transport in Makkah. The five-year work span is one year more than the one announced earlier.

The project of the Makkah Integrated Transport system includes a network of trains consisting of four metro lines with a total length of 114 km and 62 stations. In addition, the project includes a network of bus transport that covers the city of Makkah at four different levels, including the Bus Rapid Transit (BRT), Local Bus, Feeder Bus Service, and Shuttle Bus that connect the parks (Park and Ride) and Al-Masjid Al-Haram, train stations, and express buses.

The Saudi Railway Organization is constructing a station in Rusaifah as part of the high-speed Harmain Rail from Makkah to Madinah. The station in Makkah will have the arrival and departure concourses, a mosque with a capacity of 600 worshipers, a center for civil defense, helipad, 10 platforms for trains, a car parking lot with a capacity of 5,000 cars which are divided into short and long-term parking and VIP lounges.

The station has also been linked to the Public Transportation System through the provision of an appropriate parking area for buses, linking the station via pedestrian pathways. The work of this station is in full swing.

Makkah’s first train line, the 18 km Al-Mashaheer Al-Mugadassah metro, opened in 2010 and links the pilgrimage sites of Mina, Muzdalifah and Arafat.

The project’s aim is to reduce vehicular congestion in the Grand Mosque area in central Makkah and facilitate easier movement for pilgrims.

Egis/Systra consortium to undertake
design studies for Madinah metro


16 March 2015

The Madinah Metro Development Authority (MMDA) has contracted a consortium of Egis and Systra to carry out the design studies of metro network in the Saudi Arabian city.

Under the contract, the consortium will undertake feasibility studies for green, red and blue lines of the proposed metro, covering a total of 95km, including 25km underground and 48km overhead.

In addition, the agreement includes the development of a preliminary design for the metro, including the preparation of invitation to tender documentation for design and build contracts.

The new metro network in Madinah is part of a plan initiated over the past few years to develop and modernise Saudi Arabia's transport infrastructure.

With this new rail network, Madinah will be able to serve millions of pilgrims every year. The metro is scheduled to start operation in 2020.

The Madinah Metro project is divided into two distinct phases.

Along with Systra and Parsons, the French engineering group is currently in charge of the project management and construction supervision of three lines of the future Riyadh metro in Saudi Arabia.

In February, the Louis Berger Egis Rail Joint Venture (LBER JV) secured a project management contract from Qatar Railways Company for all elevated and at grade sections of the Doha metro in Qatar.

Medina makes plans for driverless metro in eight years


Worshippers visit the Prophet's mosque in Medina, Saudi Arabia.
March 17, 2015

Pilgrims travelling to Islam’s second holiest city could soon be arriving at the Prophet’s Mosque on driverless trains.

A proposed metro system in Medina, Saudi Arabia, is likely to include driverless trains, the chief executive of the city’s public transport programme said yesterday.

The metro is likely to be operational within eight years and will be mostly overground.

Proposals for the multibillion riyal mass transit system including three metro lines, two bus rapid transit (BRT) lines, four express bus routes and seven feeder bus routes were announced by Saudi Arabian government officials last November amid soaring numbers of Haj and Umrah visitors.

Speaking at the Middle East Rail conference in Dubai yesterday, Mamdouh Tarabishi, the chief executive for the Public Transportation Programme for Medina, revealed futuristic images of the city’s proposed metro carriages, adding that they would “most likely” be employing a driverless design.

“Many Muslims spend their whole lives saving up to visit the city of Medina so the least we can do is provide a safe and easy to use transport system to accommodate them,” he told conference delegates.

He added that the city of 1.3 million inhabitants currently hosts about 8 million visitors a year and has no public transport apart from taxis.

A working committee including the finance and transport ministers has been established to facilitate and supervise the project, which is expected to be rolled out within eight years.

But Mark Loader, global director for rail at the engineering consultancy CH2M Hill, which was involved in building the city’s new airport, warned future contractors to prepare carefully for working in the city.

“The city of Medina presents a number of unique challenges for contractors,” he said. “Part of the city is off-limits to non-Muslims, which can cause difficulties. When we were working on the airport there was only one hotel in the city that was open to non-Muslims. And, as in any Saudi contract you must plan early what visas you will need because it is very difficult to bring in extra labour.”

Saudi Arabia is also constructing a metro system in the capital Riyadh and a mass rail system in Mecca as part of its major infrastructure upgrade across the kingdom.

Construction of the Riyadh metro started last April and it is set to open in 2019, while work on the Mecca system is expected to start next year and will be completed in three phases over a period of 10 years.
