Riyadh Metro

We are helping Riyadh by dramatically improving transportation across the city through the design of the metro. We were appointed as lead designer (in a joint venture with Typsa) by FAST consortium to deliver three of the six lines that will comprise Riyadh Metro.

This design and build package includes 25 stations, two depots and seven park and ride car parks, 63km of track, with a total capital cost of approximately £5bn. Atkins is drawing on its multidisciplinary team of around 250 specialist staff from its offices in Riyadh, the UAE, Bangalore, Hong Kong and the UK.

Once complete, the Riyadh Metro, currently the largest public transportation project in the world, will reduce congestion and pollution while offering people sustainable, attractive and fast public transport choices for the first time
