(MENAFN) Saudi Arabia is set to complete the first part of its multi-billion dollar Haramain rail project, which includes the construction of a rail network linking its western towns of Median and Rabigh, in mid-2015, Emirates 24/7 reported.

The second part of the project, which will be linking the Western Red Sea port of Jeddah with nearby Makkah, would be finished in mid-2016.

The 450-km rail would pass through Makkah, Jeddah, King Abdullah City, Rabigh and Madina, and would include five main train stations, as well as 35 high-speed electric trains travelling at 300 km/h containing 13 carts each.
