Saudi Arabia’s $500 billion giga-project NEOM has awarded a $2 billion contract for the construction of the Connector South rail line that will link its industrial city OXAGON with THE LINE development. A joint venture of Italy-based Webuild and Riyadh-headquartered Shibh Al-Jazira Contracting, known as Sajco, will undertake the transportation project.
The road will extend south from THE LINE to NEOM City Station, passing through NEOM Bay Mansions, NEOM Bay Airport, all the way to OXAGON.
A 75 km railway line will be constructed as part of the project, the Middle East Economic Digest reported.
THE LINE railway system and the NEOM Industrial City Connector have been assigned an independent safety assessor, AuditSafe, an Egis subsidiary, and its partner Certifer.
Furthermore, NEOM has requested selected companies to submit proposals by June 12 for the building of tunnels that will act as the railway link joining the NEOM Connector with the Spine.
