Service will resume at the Haramain train station on Wednesday, announced operators on Sunday, according to the Saudi Press Agency.

The management of the Haramain High Speed Railway Project has announced on Sunday the resumption of railway trips on Wednesday, Dec. 11, 2019 after completing test runs and preparing the railway station at the New King Abdulaziz International Airport.

Operation at the facility was halted due to a fire that erupted there in late September.

Operations and Maintenance Director of the Haramain High-Speed Railway Rayan Al-Harbi said the station will be accessible to passengers traveling between the Madinah, King Abdullah Economic City and King Abdulaziz International Airport in Jeddah.
