Sheraton Park Project to complete in December
Doha, June 1, 2014
The Sheraton Park Project (SPP) is set to be completed in December, with about 90 per cent already fininshed, said a report.
The project features a landscaped park, underground four-level parking for 2,800 cars, a 66 KV/11KV substation and a tunnel below the Corniche road linking its car parks and the Doha Convention Centre, said the Gulf Times report.
It will consist of seven hectares of public garden with landscaping and hardscaping elements, children’s playground areas, cafes, restaurants and water features, besides the electronic guiding system that will direct users to available parking spots, it said quoting Qatari Diar Vinci Construction’s CEO Yanick Garillon.
Other ongoing QDVC projects such as the Doha Metro Red Line South, the New Orbital Highway and Light Rail Transit 2C2-2C3 in Lusail are on track as well, he said.
The excavation is underway in all possible areas and the first two tunnel-boring machines have arrived at the Doha port for the Doha Metro Red Line South, which was awarded to the company in June last year, said the report. The project will be finished in June 2018.
The QR4 billion ($411.5 million) New Orbital Highway project, QDVC 's latest contract, will see the construction of a 47km motorways network with a five-lane dual carriageway for light vehicles and two truck lanes in each direction, six viaducts, 17 bridges and underpasses and a 320m cut-and-cover tunnel, including eight grade-separate interchanges with cross roads, collectors-distributors, overpass and underpass structures, pedestrian and bicycles paths, landscape, hardscape and artscape.
The works, which are already underway, are set to be completed in 36 months, said the report.
