In a major step towards realising a world-scale rail project in the country, Qatar Rail has awarded four “design and build” contracts worth QR30bn for the first phase of the Doha Metro project. The construction of Phase 1 is scheduled to begin later this year and expected to be completed by 2019, Qatar Rail said yesterday. The four contracts relating to Phase 1 comprise the following underground sections- Red Line North (RLN), Red Line South (RLS), Green Line (GRN) and Major Stations (MS). Expected to employ more than 20,000 workers at its peak, construction is scheduled to begin later this year for completion by 2019, it said.
