Spanish Consortium To Build Saudi Rail Line

Recommended Posts

Saudi railway contract

The Spanish consortium, called Al Shoula, beat its French rival, SNCF Alstom to the multi-billion euro contract.

Spain overtook France in 2010 with its high-speed rail link which is the largest in Europe and accounts for 40% of Spain's 4.8 million long-distance passengers.

Mecca in particular is a well-visited city with around 2.5 million Muslims making the annual hajj pilgrimage to each year.

Mmm, I thought the French might nick this one, as a favour for helping get rid of Gadaffi. I wonder if the train can go so fast in a sandstorm?
