Contract awarded for Saudi Arabia rail project

Parsons Brinckerhoff and the Fluor Corporation will provide project management consulting services for the design and construction of a new rail line between the Red Sea and Persian Gulf in Saudi Arabia. The Saudi Landbridge project is a 950 km double-track railway connecting Jeddah on the Red Sea with the city of Riyadh. The new railway will connect with the existing 450 km line between Riyadh and King Abdul Aziz Port at Dammam on the Gulf coast. The new railway will serve primarily as a freight route that will significantly improve the efficiency of cargo transport. (ben)
