Test runs of the Haramain Rail's trains will take place as scheduled during the second half of this year, according to the Construction Week Online.

The Saudi Arabian project, which includes suspension bridges 2,500 metres in length and 24 metres high, is being carried out by 12 Spanish companies, according to the news report. As much as 90% of these structures are completed already.

The 447 kilometre Haramain train line runs from Makkah to Jeddah and Rabigh going through many neighborhoods and farms toward Madinah, with two bridges linking the station with the King Abdulaziz International Airport on a track coming from Madinah.

Project builders have already completed 429 kilometres of the first stage.

According to report, the train is expected to be fully operational in 2017.
