Project Overview


Background

The Saudi Metro is being designed to ease traffic congestion in the Saudi capital. The population in Saudi was 5.7 million in 2012, with it expecting to rise to 8.7 million in 2030.

Comprising a metro network and a parallel bus network, the public transport project in Riyadh city is being established according to the comprehensive plan for public transport developed by the High Commission for the Development of Arriyadh. This plan aims at providing all population groups with suitable public transport services, diversifying the transportation means in the city effectively and appropriately, in addition to keeping the use of private cars within the minimum limits.

The metro network constitutes the backbone of the public transport system in Riyadh. With six lines at a total length of 176 km and 85 metro stations, the metro network will cover most of the densely populated areas, public facilities, and the educational, commercial and medical institutions. The network will be connected to King Khalid International Airport and King Abdullah Financial District (KAFD), main universities, downtown and the public transport center.

The current project (package 1) explains the first two lines, namely:

The blue line: Axis of Al-Olaya - Al-Batha - Al-Hayer roads, with a total length of 38 km and 22 stations and 4 transfer stations.

The red line: Axis of King Abdullah Road, with a total length of 25.3 km and 13 stations and 3 transfer stations.

These two lines will form part of the six-line metro system that will run for a total length of 176 kilometres across the city and includes 85 stations.


Scope of Work

The Riyadh metro project includes four main stations. Located in highly populated areas and at the intersections of metro lines and bus network, the main stations are among the key factors contributing to the success of the Riyadh city public transport system. They will provide many support services such as parking lots, ticket outlets, shops, and customer service offices.

The project also includes five stations serving as transit stops between different metro lines, and integrate with the bus network. They aim at facilitating the movement of the passengers among the different levels of the public transport network in Riyadh.

Scope of work for the BACS consortium on lines 1 and 2 encompasses detailed structural, architectural and transit system design together with construction, testing and commissioning works. It also includes the procurement of all products and materials necessary to support project delivery.

The consortium will also be fully responsible for the design and integration of the transit systems and the civil infrastructure.  Working from the employers requirements, the BACS consortium will manufacture, furnish, install, test and commission all components related to both the transit systems and the civil infrastructure.

Line 1 will stretch from north to south through the centre of Riyadh, along the Olaya-Batha corridor, covering 38 kilometres. The line will include 22 stations and 4 transfer stations where it will connect with other new metro lines. Majority of line 1 will be underground.

Line 2 will run east to west along King Abdullah Road and will be built mostly at grade (15km) with some elevated sections. This line will run east to west and will extend more than 25.3 kilometres with 13 stations and 3 transfer stations.


Finance

Arriyadh Development Authority will be financing $22 billion project.


Additional Notes

Pursuant to the cabinet decision, a high committee chaired by HRH the Governor of Riyadh region and Chairman of the High Commission for the Development of Arriyadh, and membered by HRH Minister of Municipal and Rural Affairs, Minister of Finance and Minister of Transport was formed in 2012 to supervise the project.

To give the Riyadh metro project a unique identity, a unified design for all trains was prepared, and the winning consortia were required to follow this design.

The latest technologies were incorporated into the metro network design. The trains will run automatically (without a driver). Central control rooms will be used to operate and monitor trains with high precision. 

The Riyadh metro stations were designed according to a unified architectural pattern to give the project a unique identity. Intended to provide the passengers with safety and comfort, all stations will be air-conditioned, equipped with passenger information system and provide internet access. Some selected stations will include shops and car parks.

The stations will make use of solar cells technology to save about 20% of the power required for air-conditioning and lightening.
