Commercial development in Arriyadh is concentrated on the
main roads that link the city center and the populated neighborhoods in the
fringes of the city.
The economic boom enjoyed by the city contributed to making
the center of Arriyadh the only commercial area in the city.

This pattern led to the negative aspects of the city, such
as heavy traffic to and from the center of the capital as the various economic
and administrative activities concentrated in the center.
The people are forced to travel long distances between their
homes and where they work, between the shopping and recreation centers in the
middle of the city.
The new strategic planning for Arriyadh endorsed the
commercial decentralization strategy by establishing new Sub centers that will
contribute to the distribution of economic activities and administrative
services to the new populated areas.
