Makkah, As a part of its efforts for the Hajj season, the Roads General Authority (RGA) has undertaken a comprehensive inspection program, focusing on over 1,000 bridges leading to the holy sites to ensure the safety and well-being of pilgrims travelling to and from Makkah and Madinah. The authority's efforts extend beyond bridge inspections. It has implemented a range of safety and maintenance measures across the Kingdom's road network, ensuring a smooth and secure journey for pilgrims from the moment they enter the country at border crossings.
