Designing, developing and delivering world class railway systems for the Kingdom

As set out in the Saudi Railway Master Plan (SRMP), Saudi Arabia will invest 63 billion SAR (approximately $17 billion) between 2010 and 2025 into its railway infrastructure. The vision is to develop and maintain an advanced and integrated multimodal transport system to support economic growth in the Kingdom.

Key projects and milestones include the North South Railway, The Saudi Landbrigde Project, the Haramain High Speed Rail and the Dammam to Jubail rail link. Saudi Arabia will invest in multiple metro transport projects to address traffic and public transport challenges including the Jeddah, Riyadh and Mecca Metro Projects which will all break ground between 2013 and 2014.

With this in mind, IQPC has developed a platform for local and international railway professionals to meet and discuss the most pressing issues facing rail development in the Kingdom. The Saudi Rail Forum will be hosted in Riyadh from 1-3 December 2013 at the Radisson Blu in Riyadh, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
