(MENAFN - Arab News) Properties and lands expropriated for the King Abdulaziz Public Transport Project (metro and bus system) have ranged between 1.8 to 2 million square meters.



On the other hand, the Higher Commission for the Development of Riyadh (HCDR) has expropriated lands in 140 locations of which 80 percent of the lands lying on the city's outskirts were vacant, head of Projects at HCDR Eng. Tariq Al-Faris said



Meanwhile, the head of Transport Planning at HCDR Eng. Abdulrahman Al-Shalaan said the HCDR plans to initiate the bus project, which falls within the public transport project, during the first quarter of the current year



Earlier Al-Shalaan told a public transport forum that the implementation of the bus project has been divided into three stages where the first operation stage will begin in the soutern part of the city, followed by the central and finally finishing in the northern part of the city




Four consortia are vying for the operation and maintenance of the bus network project in Riyadh namely the Dallah Haj Transport/MV Transportation Inc., Saudi Public Transport Co./RATP-DEV, El Seif Engineering and Contracting Co. Ltd./Gersel Turizm Tasimacilik, and Hafil Public Transport Company/National Express Group Plc

Al-Shalaan said the bus network operation will be given first priority as it is smaller in terms of infrastructural works, engineering complexity and will require less time for implementation



Last week, officials of the HCDR said the public transport project in the city will target the major educational facilities, government installations, commercial and health centers and densely populated areas.
