Work starts on Doha Metro stations
Doha, November 28, 2013
Qatar Rail has begun work on Doha Metro's 20 stations, out of the planned 25, and preliminary drilling works for the metro tunnels have also started, a senior official said.
Qatar Rail has already signed several agreements worth over $32 billion in total for the Doha Metro Project, said Engineer Hamad Al Bishri, deputy CEO and chief program officer, Qatar Rail.
The Phase 1 of the Doha Metro will be completed in 2019, he said, speaking at the Trans4 conference in Doha.
Trans4 is Qatar's international exhibition and conference for transport and logistics industries.
He said Qatar Rail is also moving ahead at great speed with the Lusail Light Rail Transit project, slated to be officially delivered by end of 2016. Drilling works for the project’s tunnels have been finalised and over 55 per cent of the drilling works for its stations are also complete, he said. - TradeArabia News Service
