Riyadh metro to be completed by end of 2023

Riyadh metro to be completed by end of 2023

Mayor of Riyadh Prince Faisal Bin Abdulaziz Bin Ayyaf said that the Riyadh metro project will be completed before the end of 2023, or in the beginning of 2024 at the latest.
He made the remarks during an interview in a program titled “In the Picture” on the Rotana Khalijia channel, where he stated that the Riyadh metro is considered as the largest infrastructure project to be implemented in an existing city.

Riyadh metro will consist 6 lines, with a total of 84 stations, Prince Faisal noted.

He pointed out that the metro would be contributing in solving the traffic problem, especially that 90% of the trips within the Saudi capital rely on cars. “It’ll be providing an option that could solve the problem and save half of the time spent on the trips, will attract several people to depend on.”

With regard to the public parkings’ plan in Riyadh, with its first phase being announced weeks ago, Prince Faisal said that it will be focusing on the central area, due to being the most congested area.

He said that the public parkings’ plan in Riyadh would be implemented within the upcoming two years.

When asked about the streets’ excavation in Riyadh, he confirmed that they have conducted a study on a square with a side length of 1 kilometer, and its results showed that this area witnessed 64 excavations in 5 years.

Prince Faisal added that a model has been developed to establish a center that handles the operation of organizing the excavation between the different areas, so that they are all completed at the same time. The center will be announced after completing government procedures.

He revealed a new plan that is being worked on in Riyadh, most prominent of which is vertical rather than horizontal expansion, then increasing the number of buildings.

Additionally, there’ll be modern transport network and development of more than a center in Riyadh to guarantee the distribution of population densities and traffic trips through these centers.
