Riyadh Metro Project

Description of the Environmental Measure

Problem detected:

During the construction of the Riyadh Metro in Saudi Arabia actions were implemented to minimise the disruption caused in nearby areas.

Solutions adopted:

The solutions were established in fixed site entrances and exits, regularly checking the efficiency of the environmental-control system, and preventing waste from accumulating on the site. Environmental impact assessment has also been undertaken to delimit the issues caused on the site.



This limited area has controlled equipment emitting fumes and noise levels, with a view to protecting people’s health and minimising the impact on local properties.
