The Ministry of Transport (MOT) of Saudi Arabia has realized this project to develop a modern and efficient road network in the north of the Kingdom in Tabuk area. These road improvements involve an increment of transport to and from the border with Jordan. The project connects the areas of the Red Sea and the Gulf of Aqaba;
The project includes:

The alignment studied for Hagal / Ras Al-Sheikh Humayd Costal Road (total length of 126 Km) starts at Hagal town located in Tabuk Region runs southward by the Red Sea through the center of the village of Magna. From this point the alignment runs again for 30 Km southward, and proceeds to Ras Al-Sheikh Humayd which is an uninhabited headland located in the Tabuk Region between the beginning of the Gulf of Aqaba and the end of the Red Sea.
The typical cross section of the road is: 2x3-lanes, 3.65 m each, 2.0 m inner shoulders, 2.50 m external fully paved shoulders and 10 m median. 7 bridges (3x20m, 5x20m, 6x20m) camel crossings located at strategic points are included. These are completed with high steel parapets for avoiding the vision of the vehicles on the road.
TABUK / SHARMA EXPRESSWAY:
The alignment studied for Tabuk / Sharma expressway (total length of 142 Km) starts at Tabuk city from the section of Duba Road. It runs westward through Sarwat mountains and proceeds to Sharma tourist city located on the Red Sea coast.
The typical cross section of the expressway is: 2x3-lanes, 3.65 m each, 2.0 m inner shoulders, 2.5 m external fully paved shoulders and 16 m median. Seven interchanges, 7 bridges (seismic standards, 20 m spans), and 4 bridges (3x20m and 2x20m), camel crossings located at strategic points are included. These are completed with high steel parapets for avoiding the vision of the vehicles on the road.
