The project will be completed in two years and seven months. Three elevated stations at Barwa Village, Al Wakrah and Qatar Economic Zone, and a 6.97km section of rail will be constructed. The road at the entrance to Al Wakrah will be tunnelised as well, stated the consortium.

According to reports, the budget for the Doha Metro project exceeds US$27bn and extends for 354km. Doha Metro will connect major sites in Qatar like the Education City, West Bay, Lusail, Hamad Bin Khalifa International Airport and the Qatar National Convention Centre (QNCC).

This project comes just six months after FCC bagged a contract to build three lines of the Riyadh Metro for US$8mn.
