Is it like a monorail?vc15nets said:Some facts about the project:
It will transport passangers from Northern Riyadh to Southern Riyadh, and East to West (vice versa).
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.
What's KSU?HiJazzey said: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.
