Saudi Arabia's Neom has extended the tender closing date for several packages of The Line's Spine railway network. It has set 16 June as the bid submission deadline for Lot 9 and 3 July for Lot 10. The main contract tender was first issued on 6 August last year. The two lots are part of the cut-and-cover rail tunnel for The Spine. Their scope includes installing structural concrete for The Spine rail system tunnels and stations. The Spine is the infrastructure corridor running parallel to The Line that includes a high-speed rail and the Connector South, which links the industrial zone, Oxagon, to The Line. US-based Aecom is the design consultant and Bechtel is the project management consultant on The Spine railway network project. Construction work on the railway network at Neom has already started. In early May 2023, a joint venture of Italy-based Webuild and Riyadh-headquartered Shibh Al-Jazira Contracting (Sajco) secured a $1.5bn contract to build the Connector South line. The contract involves the construction of a 75-kilometre railway line, including earthworks, 14 viaducts, seven roads, nine rail underpasses, 152 pipe and box culverts, a freight line, infrastructure maintenance depots and associated facilities. The infrastructure corridor will run south from The Line to Neom City Station.     For registration as supplier: (ICE RIYADH)
