Two stations approximately 450 km apart, terminus of the high speed railway line (LGV) connecting the cities of Mecca and Medina, will be built for 2015.
The project involves the construction of the station in Medina (63,000 m2), and in Mecca (128,000 m2) as well as its related facilities (car parks, helipad, fire
station, mosque, etc., a total area of 400,000 m2 for the Mecca site). Their specific design was entrusted to the architects Foster Partners and Buro Happold.
Special structures have been devised to withstand extreme weather conditions (heat, wind, etc.).
