Mecca is kinda south of Jeddah, Kingdom city is exactly north of Jeddah and the new economic city is a very few kilometres north of Jeddah a whole.

People heading to Medina (The other holy City) will have to pass thru Jeddah and the new economic city via train.

I don't understand the backlash with your question tbh, you're just curious and want to know; there was nothing with what you said that implies you're impatient about this project

In the end this is a forum where people find out information and the topic is discussed, questions are one of the key elements for people to find stuff out!

Building's in the USA go up faster than this, and there's nothing normal about that.

No, but we do occasionally get into the 30s in the southern parts of the country. Anyway, I think bigreach was being sarcastic anyway.

It will be done when it is finished. It will be as high as it is when they stop working.
How tall will it be?

Saudi Arabia cares very little the US Russian feud; what there trying to do is price US shale out of the market by allowing prices to fall.

Actually it's targeted at Iran. that will teach them not to mess with Saudi in Iraq and Syria. Saudi can handle the price drop more than any country on earth, it's better to ruin and weed out Iran this way than a more expensive confrontation.
