The Makkah Secretariat said Sunday that 90 percent of the Haramain train project, being implemented in the region, is complete, noting that about 429 km out of 447 km has been constructed, a local newspaper reported.

The secretariat announced on its Twitter account, confirming that the widest overpass in the world, about 70 meters wide, is also complete. Official sources from the administration of the project said construction work will be completed on schedule at the end of this year, refuting rumors which cited delays due to nonpayment of salaries of a number of workers involved in the project.

The actual operation of the train will begin after 2017 to ensure all security and safety procedures work to the satisfaction of the operators.More
