The UK-based Foster & Partners and Buro Happold joint venture has been selected to design four stations along a new high-speed railway line that connects Makkah and Madinah via Jeddah in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.

The stations will be environmentally friendly, have separate arrival and departure areas, and generous circulation spaces that provide a high-quality travel experience for rail passengers.

The railway line is operated by Haramain High-speed Railway and features trains capable of speeds up to 300km per hour.
