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.
Projects in the pipeline include a 25-billion-dollar metro and rail network, some sections of which will be ready for the World Cup, and a 10-billion-dollar Doha International Airport, the first phase of which will open in 2012.
As well as an array of ongoing and planned road, bridge and utilities projects by Ashghal, the country is also investing in the development of the New Doha International Airport (NDIA); a new, deep-water Doha Port, set to replace the existing port; on top of a sophisticated metro system forming one part of country-wide, integrated, railway network.
