Doha Metro launch likely in 2019



Following the approval of the masterplan and design of the Doha Metro, Qatar Rail has kicked off its ambitious project and aims to launch the country’s first metro service in the last quarter of 2019, said a report.

Work has already begun on Musheireb station, which will be the largest junction with a 190-metre long platform located some 30 meters underground – and Education City, the second largest in the network, reported the Peninsula, citing officials.

The government has allotted all the land required for all the rail projects, including Doha Metro, the one that will connect Qatar to the upcoming GCC rail grid and Lusail City light rail, the report stated. More info
