DESCRIPTION
 
.
Foster + Partners Jeddah Metro Saudi ArabiaFollowing an international design competition, a contract signing ceremony was held in Jeddah to celebrate the appointment of Foster + Partners Team to develop the architectural vision for Jeddah’s city-wide public transport plan. The contract was signed by governor of Makkah Province, HH Prince Khaled bin Faisal bin Abdelaziz Al Saud.

Foster + Partners Jeddah Metro Saudi ArabiaTaking a long-term, sustainable approach, which anticipates growth centuries from now, the vision for Jeddah’s transport network includes the design of metro, ferry, bus, cycle, public spaces and nodes of development. The comprehensive plan extends from the design of the stations to the trains and branding. In addition, the development of the metro system will create a new urban amenity for the city of Jeddah at key locations below the elevated track.

Designed in response to the local climate, the masterplan is city-wide and draws on the high-density, compact urban model of the ancient quarter of Al Balad, with its mixture of uses and comfortable, walkable shaded streets. Currently only 12 percent of the population live within a 10 minute walk of Jeddah’s transport nodes – the project aims to achieve 50 percent, through a process of densification and strategic planning. Each station node will create a new neighbourhood, with a unique character, and together these will create a diverse and vibrant city.
