The project

Our work on the HHSR incorporates one cut-and-cover tunnel, 46 rail bridges, 9 wadi bridges, and 5 rail underpasses. We also designed 53 vehicular overpasses, 30 vehicular underpasses, 12 Camel crossings, 5 stations, and 3 depots to allow the rail to fulfill the needs of its users.

HHSR is the first in the Middle East. It provides the fastest and the safest mode of conveyance for the pilgrims, Umra performers, and other passengers. It combines necessary comfort with entertainment and high luxury.
