China to build Mecca rail system
« on: February 13, 2009, 01:25:20 AM »
China has signed an agreement with Saudi Arabia to build a new railway system linking the main sites of the annual Muslim pilgrimage, the Hajj.

The new railway will connect the city of Mecca with the pilgrim destinations of Mina, Arafat and Muzdalifah.

Saudi Arabia also plans to build a high-speed rail link to take pilgrims from Mecca to Medina, Islam's two holiest cities, in 30 minutes.

The journey time by road can take anywhere between four and five hours.

Millions of Islamic faithful descend on Mecca during the annual mass pilgrimage.

The new network in Saudi Arabia is expected to be ready within three years, with one section of the line due to be completed in time for the 2010 Hajj, officials said.

The contract, worth almost $1.8bn (?1.24bn), was awarded to the China Railway Company and a French firm.

The project was announced during a three-day visit by the Chinese President, Hu Jintao, to Saudi Arabia.

China is becoming a key contractor on infrastructure projects in the oil-rich kingdom.

It is good that the Red Dragon Jin makes open friendship with the False Prophet Shashdhwaja, that it was supposed to make.

It is further good that they are to run a rail system in Mecca and Medina, as Muslamic bhooks say that before their end times, an unconventional large and long animal will start running very fast going sometimes over the rivers and mountains and sometimes under the rivers and mountains. It was named perhaps as Balbala.

At least the Saudi quranimals can't spent the money they invested in the railroad project in terrorism.

I hope they use cheap parts and slave labor like in many of their products.
And I also hope it runs damn fast.

   It will take them 3 years. Something here in the US takes 30 if it is not scrapped after millions of tax dollars are wasted on environmental studies. Just look at the East Side Expansion and the second avenue subway line. Instead of actual construction, the funding was used to count trees and five people were required to do it each time.
Does it bother you that you have to face the dome and the rock to say the sh'ma?
