U.S.-based construction firm Hill International has secured a project management contract for roadwork at the Madinah Central Area (MCA) development for Saudi-based Rua Al-Madinah Holding Company, a Saudi Public Investment Fund (PIF) company established in 2017. When completed in 2023, the infrastructure project will establish the Al-Amida road as an alternative to the city’s current ring road with a total of six lanes, an upgrade to the Ali Bin Abi Taleb traffic tunnel, and a new connection to the King Faisal ring road. Hill International’s work will include removal of existing pavement, guardrails, barriers, trees, curbs, excavation, construction of roadway, relocation of service reservation, paving, drainage, sewerage, potables, street lighting, telecom and power networks, pavement marking and striping, installation of new guardrail and barriers, extension of existing utility ducts, backfilling and compaction, traffic detouring and management, and other construction-related work. The work furthers Vision 2030’s goals for tourism development in the Madinah region, which aim to increase the city’s number of annual visitors to 23 million by 2030.
