Source Title: Saudi urban underground tunnel project undertaken by Chinese Enterprises
&”This tunnel is the only way for western Saudi Arabia to enter the urban area of naijilan. It was just completed and opened to traffic not long ago, making it more convenient for people to travel along the line. &”Shahari, a resident of shatnaijilan, drives through the underground tunnel and is happy to introduce himself to friends from other places. The road in the tunnel is spacious and flat, with spiral patterns, pictographic symbols and horse patterns with local historical and cultural characteristics carved on the walls on both sides.
Naijilan city is located in the southern border of Sartre. Its road traffic is underdeveloped, and its infrastructure and economic development lag behind for a long time. The tunnel mentioned by sheikhari is the underground tunnel project of Prince nijran muteb Road, which was constructed by Saudi branch of China Civil Engineering Group Co., Ltd. The project is located in the main road of the city center, which is one of the only two underground passages in the city. Inside the tunnel, there are 6 lanes in both directions and 3 lanes in the auxiliary roads on both sides.
&The underground tunnel reasonably separates the urban traffic flow from the surrounding residents’ life, greatly improves the road safety and makes our life more convenient. &”Luckman works in a barber shop near the tunnel section. The project has built a lot of new parking spaces for the streets, making it convenient for customers to park and increasing the passenger flow of surrounding shops.”;.
Mazny, who lives nearby, is glad that the tunnel construction has solved the problem of waterlogging in rainy season for many years. The project is just located in the low-lying area in the center of Nigerian city. In the past, during the rainy season from March to May every year, there was a lot of water on the road, which brought great inconvenience to production and life. “During the rainy season last year, the drainage system built in the tunnel withstood the test. Not only was there no water inside the tunnel, but the water in the surrounding roads was quickly drained away,” mazney said. Everyone is more at ease. ”
The project also trained a number of local technical talents. &”Chinese enterprises attach great importance to technical training. I have mastered rich working methods and construction technology experience here, and my professional ability has improved rapidly. &”Project Yemeni engineer Ibrahim Fahd has grown from a Metrology Engineer to a project manager in two years, and his income has also increased significantly. &There are also many employees like me who have improved their lives by learning professional skills. ”
Otaibi, mayor of Nigerian city, said that the completion and opening of the project has improved the connectivity between Nigerian city and other areas of Saudi Arabia, injected vitality into the local economic development, and looked forward to more cooperation with Chinese enterprises in infrastructure investment and other fields in the future;.
