The Makkah-Madinah Haramin train service will resume on Wednesday. It is hoped that train services will be fully operational before the upcoming Hajj.
Initially there will be 24 to 30 services per day. The move is to increase the number of services within a month to 40 to 54 services per day with Ramadan. The resumption of the service will bring much relief to the believers who come to pray on both sides during the holy month.
The Sulaimaniyah railway station in Jeddah is undergoing renovations following a fire. In this case, the King Abdul Aziz Airport railway station in Jeddah should be used by passengers in Jeddah.
Sulaimaniya station will be fully operational soon. More than 700 workers are working on the restoration work. Reconstruction work is being carried out at the full cost of the company that won the contract to build the station.
