Jeddah to Makkah in 35 minutes on this new highway

A new 72-kilometer-long highway is under construction that would reduce the travel between Jeddah to Makkah to 35 minutes.

Currently, if you want to commute from Jeddah to Makkah in your car during average traffic time, it takes around 60 minutes.

However, once the new highway is opened for the residents, it will take just 35 minutes to travel from Makkah to Jeddah and vice versa. 

As we all know there is no airport in the Holy City of Makkah and most of the pilgrims who travel from far countries arrive in Jeddah and from there they move to Makah by road.

This new highway will start from the Jeddah airport and end on the fourth ring road in Makah. This highway will also link with the district in North Jeddah, Obhur, Al-Jawhara Stadium, and King Abdullah Economic City.

The expected speed on the new Jeddah Makkah highway would be 140 for light vehicles.
