Therefore, it is considered one of the main sectors that contribute effectively to the renaissance of any country.Without an efficient transport sector, it would be hard to benefit from the basic advantages of any location or invest in the available opportunities for production.Since 2008, the Saudi government have invested heavily in transport infrastructure projects as part of its efforts to expand and diversify the economy.
