SAUDI ARABIA: The Madinah Metro Development Authority has selected Egis and Systra to carry out feasibility studies and preliminary design for a three-line metro. The 12-month contract also includes the preparation of tender documentation for the future design and build contracts.
The Green, Blue and Red lines would have a total route length of 95 km, including 25 km underground and 48 km elevated.
