The Arriyadh Development Authority (ADA) has awarded Finland’s Kone a contract to supply 418 elevators and escalators for the Riyadh Metro Line 3.

Line 3 extends 41 kilometres across 22 stations.

The contract entails 262 escalators and 156 elevators, all of which will be equipped with Kone’s e-link monitoring systems.

The value of the contract was not disclosed.

The $23bn, 176km Riyadh Metro has six lines and is expected to be completed in 2019.

The Arriyadh Development Authority received offers for the contract to operate and maintain (O&M) the Riyadh Metro in December last year.

In early 2016, Kone also won a contract to supply moving walkways, escalators and elevators for the under-construction new terminal at Bahrain International airport.
