KAEC Transportation Framework

Client Emaar, The Economic City    Location Saudi Arabia    Duration 2015 - 2016   

KCUS is currently developing a transportation framework for King Abdullah Economic City (KAEC), which is the largest of four economic cities currently being built in Saudi Arabia. The development of the KAEC Transportation Framework would be the first phase in the development of a more detailed transit and ITS Master Plan. This framework will propose a public transit system and an ITS network, identify transit and ITS projects and technologies that can be completed within the next five years, and provide a high-level schedule for the development of a Public Transit and ITS Master Plan, and for the implementation of the proposed public transit and ITS projects.
As part of this effort, KCUS is conducting a series of workshops in order to document stakeholder needs, desires, goals, and objectives, along with KAEC’s existing transit- and ITS-related infrastructure plans and policies. KCUS will also produce a preliminary cost estimate for the development of a Public Transit and ITS Master Plan and for the implementation of the proposed transit and ITS projects.
