‘Keep Jeddah moving forward’: significant business opportunity for British car park consultants

The Jeddah Development and Urban Regeneration Company (JDURC) is a private investment arm of the Jeddah Municipality in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. JDRUC are part of a US$20 billion scheme to redevelop the city of Jeddah including housing, redesign of roads and a comprehensive public transport system including metro, tram and buses. Crucial to this redevelopment is workable car parking across the city and JDURC wish to develop a Parking Business Model for Jeddah by employing selective experts on secondment or other basis. Once the model has been developed, agreed and approved then this will form the basis for establishing a Parking Management Company by JDURC.

JDURC would like to explore the possibility of obtaining assistance by way of assignment of staff and or consultancy services from foreign operators with proven track records. The newly formed Company will have total responsibility for managing parking spaces, both on and off street, for the whole city of Jeddah. A previous parking study had already been carried out for the Jeddah Municipality as one of the deliverables and requirements of the Jeddah Transportation Master Plan.  The selected candidate(s) may not fully spend their total time in Jeddah but are required to be here for a core period of time to conduct discussions and collect data.

This assignment is expected to deal with various parking systems that best suit Jeddah and is subject to and open for debate and recommendations for optimal solutions and up to date technologies in managing car parking (and lorry parking). In addition the assignment would undertake economic evaluation and revenue analysis, developing parking policies, overall parking strategy and set enforcement processes to protect both revenue and reduce traffic congestion and most importantly 'Keep Jeddah moving forward'. It is also expected that this assignment should also look at fleet management and ensure better parking design and managing parking in terms of operation and maintenance.

Interested parties should contact Engineer Ibrahim Kutubkhanah, CEO of JDURC, at ikutubkhanah@jdurc.com.
