Saudi Arabia will open bids to build a metro system in Jeddah “shortly,” Arab News reported, citing Ibrahim Kutubkhana, the undersecretary at the Jeddah mayor’s office for projects and urban construction.
The 108-kilometer (67-mile) network will have three lines running through the Red Sea city, the newspaper said. The system will have 46 stations, including a connection with King Abdulaziz International Airport, and bus network linking stations with residential districts, the paper said.
