Qatar’s key infrastructure projects

By William Skidmore  www.constructionweekonline.com

As Doha’s infrastructure roll-out gathers momentum, the importance of being able to build over- and underground is essential. William Skidmore looks at the estimated $ 20bn of projects underway in Qatar that focus on bridges, tunnels and interchanges

The most significant tunnelling activity planned in Qatar is for the Doha Metro project, which recently held a groundbreaking ceremony within developer Msheireb Properties’ Downtown Doha scheme. The ceremony took place at the site of a proposed metro station at Msheireb, which will be the hub for Doha’s proposed 85km, $ 3bn metro system.

Qatar Rail CEO Caad Ahmed al-Muhannadi said: “Phase 1 of the Doha Metro is scheduled to be operational in Q4 2019.” The $ 79m enabling works on the first phase of the project is being carried out by a JV between Austrian tunnelling specialist Porr Group alongside Qatari firm HBK Contracting and the Saudi Binladin Group.
