About Qatar Rail
Following its establishment in 2011 to deliver an integrated railway system for Qatar, Qatar Railways Company (Qatar Rail) is currently leading one of the largest rail projects in the world, with the aim to construct a new rail network that is environmentally friendly and technologically advanced, and that will meet the demands of the rapidly expanding population of Qatar. The company is responsible for the design, construction, commissioning, operation and maintenance of the entire rail network and systems, and will manage Qatar’s rail network once operating.
The individual rail projects comprise the Doha Metro, a mostly underground rail network which connects communities within Doha and its suburbs, the Lusail Light Rail Transit (LLRT), a tram network providing comfortable and convenient travel within the new city of Lusail in Qatar, and the Long Distance Passenger and Freight Rail connecting cities in the north and west with Doha, and the country with the forthcoming GCC rail system.
Doha Metro: The Doha Metro in Qatar's capital city will be one of the most advanced rail transit systems in the world. It will have four lines with an approximate overall length of 300 km and 100 stations. It will be built over two phases: the first phase will see the Red, Gold, and Green lines opening in 2019, with 37 stations. The second phase will involve the introduction of an additional line (Blue) and the expansion of the existing ones, with more than 60 additional stations.
Lusail LRT: Lusail is an upcoming waterfront development that will see the best of innovative sustainability and urban technologies being used to create a city that will house up to 200,000 residents in the future. The Lusail Light Rail Transit (LLRT) network, a tram-based system, will connect all the major points of interest in the city. The network will consist of four main tram lines (Red, Green, Purple, Yellow), and 37 passenger train stations including 10 underground
Qatar Rail Long Distance: Qatar Rail’s Long Distance Passenger and Freight Rail project envisages development of a long distance passenger and freight rail network to connect major population centres and Qatari industries and to form part of the planned Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) railway network linking the six countries of the region (the State of Qatar, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates, State of Kuwait, Kingdom of Bahrain, and Sultanate of Oman). The network will be executed over four phases. There will be five main lines: 1 freight line, 3 mixed passenger and freight lines and 1 high-speed passenger line. Phase 1 includes construction of nearly 143km of railway track with a station, three freight yards, an intermodal yard, 59 bridges and 36 culverts.
