Riyadh – Dammam Highway

Cruising along the Riyadh – Dammam highway at  180 kmph on the fast lane sometime in the beginning of March last year while returning from our meeting at Riyadh. We managed to over the entire distance to Al-Jubail a little under 4 hours.

The 383 km stretch traverses through a desolate landscape with service stations about every 50 km apart.  The road-side is littered with burnt-out wrecks, an ominous reminder to the dangers of speeding.
