Qatar’s $37bn national rail project throws up tremendous opportunities for contractors says Qatar Rail deputy CEO Geoff Mee.

The massive project includes plans for a high-speed long distance rail link, driverless four-line Metro service for Doha and freight lines.

The plans also include the West Bay People Mover, and overground rail system designed to distribute passengers around Doha’s tower district.

The initial push will be to develop the Doha Metro Red Line that runs between Messaieed in the south with Al Khor in the North.

The line runs through the heart of Doha, with branches to the New Doha International Airport and underground tunnelling required to run through the heart of the old city to Al Bidda and West Bay.
