A Turkish company is building the Medina station of the high-speed train project, which will travel between Mecca and Medina at 2,5 hour. Yapı Center, which started the 415 million-dollar project in November last year, plans to complete the Medina station in 2 year.
Jehovah's Consul General Salih Mutlu Şen visited the project recently and inspected the works on site, and was informed by Project Manager Mehmet Başer, Project Director Şinasi Ayas, Deputy Project Manager Kasım Eryürük and Field Chief Ahmet Hançer.
In the later stages of the project, 60 of which are Turkish engineers, 350 people will be employed, and a total of 1.700 people will be employed, of which approximately 900 will be Turkish workers.
It was stated that train stations were designed as multi-purpose monuments for both architectural and functional purposes. The Saudi government plans to relieve the transportation of 10 million to the pilgrimage and Umrah and the holy places.
