FAST to construct Riyadh Metro Line 4 extension to airport [free access]

October 18, 2018

The Arriyadh Development Authority (ADA), the developer of Riyadh Metro, has awarded a contract to FAST consortium to construct a 1.5-km extension (elevated) of Line 4. The extension covers two stations, of which one caters to Terminals 1 and 2 and the other caters to Terminals 3 and 4 of King Khalid International Airport (KKID). Line 4 will provide direct connectivity between Riyadh’s future financial centre, King Abdullah Financial District (KAFD), and KKID.

 

In July 2013, FAST had secured a contract to design, build and commission Lines 4, 5 and 6 of the Riyadh Metro. The lines are currently under construction and are scheduled to start operations in 2019.
