Haramain High-Speed Train Rail Project

The Al-Haramain Train Project aims to provide a reliable, fast, and convenient means of travel among the holy cities of Saudi Arabia. The Haramain high-speed train design allows it to be operational at the speed of 300 Km/h and has a rail length of 450 km.

Western Train, Mecca-Medina High-Speed Rail, and Haramain High Speed are all the same names for the launched high-speed railway train. 

The growing number of Umrah performers and pilgrims visiting Mecca and the city’s people needed more options than private taxis and personal vehicles.

Notably, the Mecca-Medina high-speed train was considered the best option to minimize road traffic and boost tourism and local businesses.
