The high-speed train that will connect the cities of Makkah and Madinah in Saudi Arabia has successfully completed its first test run along the entire route, reaching its top speed of 300 km/h. The Talgo train travelled the 450 kilometres of the Haramain project with the Saudi Transport minister, Nabil al Amudi, the Spanish ambassador, Álvaro Iranzo, and other local dignitaries and construction company representatives on board.

Ineco, along with eleven other Spanish companies (Adif, Cobra, Consultrans, Copasa, Imathia, Inabensa, Indra, OHL, Renfe, Siemens Rail Automation and Talgo) and two Saudi partners, is part of the Al Shoula consortium, which is responsible for design, construction, maintenance and operation.
