Last major contracts for Riyadh metro

Saudi Arabia’s Arriyadh Development Authority (ADA) has named the two winning international consortiums that will oversee the design and construction of Riyadh’s new $22.5bn (£14.5bn) metro system.

Riyadh Metro Transit Consultants (RMTC), a joint venture between US firm Parsons and French firms Egis and Systra, has been awarded the £358M contract to manage metro lines 1, 2 and 3. These lines will be designed and built by the Bechtel-led BACS and Ansaldo-led Arriyadh New Mobility group consortiums.

Riyadh Advanced Metro Project Execution and Delivery (RAMPED), a joint venture between Louis Berger and Hill International, has won the £170M contract to manage construction of metro lines 4, 5 and 6. These will be designed and built by the Samsung-led FAST consortium.

ADA president Ibrahim Bin Muhammad Al Sultan said that all the major partners are now in place to design, build and project manage the development of the metro.

The contract awards build on the July announcement of the winning design and build contractors for the scheme.

The 176km long metro network features six lines and is the longest public transport system project currently in development worldwide.
