Big Equipment Scoop Shovels

There is frenzied construction going on in every corner of Jeddah.  The streets have been undergoing major renovations in removing dozens of huge and impractical traffic circles and replacing these intersections with more efficient overpasses to keep traffic moving. 

There is also a huge electric train project called the Haramain High Speed Rail project underway which will eventually connect Mecca, Jeddah, and Medina via 449 km of high speed rail.  This project will accommodate millions of religious pilgrims each year when completed
