Urban Planning and Transportation Study
Riyadh, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia
The Ar-Riyadh Development Authority selected us, with Dornier Consulting and Omrania & Associates, to prepare a comprehensive development plan for the Olayya-Batha corridor, one of Riyadh's busiest traffic arteries. The corridor is currently oriented towards single vehicle traffic. Significant congestion and a lack of street-level development has made pedestrian activity along the corridor virtually non-existent.
Riyadh's population is set to double over the next 15 years. In anticipation of this growth, the Development Authority has identified locations for five major metropolitan sub-centers in order to establish concentrated nodes of development, services and employment. The Olayya-Batha corridor connects the northern and the southern metropolitan sub-centers to the central area and as a result, will serve as a development spine to accommodate higher density residential areas and more intensive and attractive commercial activities.
