A total of 3,032 abandoned cars were removed from various spots across the country over the past two months, as part of an ongoing campaign launched by the Ministry of Municipal Affairs and Urban Planning.
Safar Mubarak Al Safi, director of the Public Cleaning Project at the ministry, said the campaign, launched on March 19, had been successful in clearing about 85.9 percent of all the abandoned vehicles spotted in various parts of the country.
The campaign covered all municipalities, including Doha, Rayyan, Al Wakra, Umm Salal, Al Khor, Shamal, Al Dhakira and Al Dhaain.
“We have already identified the spots and legal procedures are under way to remove the remaining vehicles,” said Al Safi.

He said the Public Cleaning Project, under guidelines from the Minister of Municipal Affairs and Urban Planning, H E Abdul Rahman bin Khalifa Al Thani, will soon launch a cleaning campaign specially targeting the Industrial Area.
The objective of the campaign is to keep the Industrial Area clean and organised, he added. Vehicles and other things dumped on the streets in front of garages and commercial buildings will be removed. The campaign is scheduled to begin in July.
“We will issue a public announcement prior to the launch of the campaign so that people can correct the situation on their own. If anybody fails to do that, they will have to bear the losses,” said Al Safi.
