Riyadh airport projects reviewed

Prince Turki bin Abdullah, acting governor of Riyadh, reviewed proposed sites for the establishment of new airports in the region Wednesday. The new airports come in addition to a number of other development projects, all with a strategic aim of serving the Riyadh region and its inhabitants.
The proposals were reviewed during a meeting between the acting governor, Ibrahim Al-Digan, acting secretary of Riyadh; Tariq Al-Faris, a member of the High Commission for the Development of Riyadh; and the acting president of the Projects Center, Rumaih Al-Rumaih, and a number of other officials.
The meeting also reviewed the development of the Riyadh North-South train project, besides discussing additional development projects.
Prince Turki thanked participants for their efforts in the development of these projects.
The meeting was also attended by Suleiman Al-Kanas, assistant undersecretary of the Riyadh region. This is the second meeting in two weeks following an initial meeting in which Prince Turki, Al-Digan and Al-Faris participated at the governor’s palace.
At the meeting, Prince Turki reviewed the development of one of the stations of the King Abdul Aziz Public Transport Project and was briefed on the design, capacity and the possibility of connecting the stations.
The latest developments in the project and its workflow were also discussed.
