The Mecca-Medina high-speed link spreads 281 miles between the most holy cities of Saudi Arabia and has been in partial operations since December 2017. The length of the route takes about four and a half hours to travel, compared to the car by five hours. However, there is no complete justification for the construction of this railway; Harman is expected to carry three million passengers annually, in which many Haj and Umra pilgrims are getting relief from the crowd of traffic.
