The Managing Director and Board Member of Qatar Railways Company Engineer Abdullah Abdul Aziz Al Subaie has said that the company is currently working on the documents of its first tender for the railway and metro system in Qatar, adding that the tender is expected to be offered soon and that some preliminary designs have already been prepared.
Integral to the plan is a $13bn new international airport by 2013, though $20bn is also slated for road and highway projects and $5.5bn for a new deepwater port. There will be up to $40bn invested on rail construction, with a 340-km, 98-station metro line for Doha and its outskirts and a high-speed connection linking Qatar with other Gulf states.
Gas-rich Doha must scramble to complete multibillion-dollar projects including the much-delayed $4bn Qatar-Bahrain Causeway, and its $25bn metro and rail scheme – originally slated for completion in 2025 – said National Bank of Kuwait (NBK) in a report.
