Local and international groups on 16 October submitted bids to Saudi Railways Organisation (SRO)for the project to install a signalling system and a wireless communication system along the existing Riyadh-Dammam freight and passenger railway lines. The turnkey package is estimated to be worth about $125 million-160 million. The upgrade is part of a comprehensive network expansion programme that will involve bringing on board private concessionaires and abolishing the state monopoly in the railway sector (MEED 6:8:04).
