Underground stations as part of the Doha Metro Project are expected to be complete by 2018, a senior official has told Gulf Times.
Engineering works at the Lusail LRT underground station is almost 100% complete, while other architectural and technical works will be held in another stage in connection with other stations.
“Within a short time, Qatar Rail has signed a considerable number of contracts for the first stage of the huge project worth $32bn in total. The Long Distance Passenger and Freight Rail transportation system, which will cover 350km in distance at a speed ranging between 220 and 350km/h for passenger trains, and nearing 120km/h for freight trains, is currently under technical and commercial evaluation by expert consultants,” he said.
