The LRTC Consortium comprising Alstom and QDVC has completed the first phase of the Lusail Light Rail Transit (LRT) project in Qatar.

This comes six years after the consortium was contracted by Qatar Railways Company to deliver a turnkey tram system in Lusail, an under-construction planned city near Doha.

Phase I of the project includes 9.7km of catenary-free single-track line and 12.8km of single-track underground line.

It features 16 stations, one interchange station with Metro, one depot and one viaduct crossing over the Al Khor Expressway.

Alstom Middle East managing director Mama Sougoufara said: “We are very proud of our major contribution to the completion of Phase 1 of Lusail LRT Project, which will provide a reliable and environmentally friendly transportation system for Lusail’s residents and visitors.

“Indeed, Qatar has become one of the most advanced countries in the region in terms of smart mobility and transportation, and we are committed to meet the country’s growing needs for innovative and sustainable mobility systems.”

Under the contract, Alstom is responsible for delivering 28 Citadis X05 trams, track works, power supply equipment, signalling works and platform screen doors.

Each of the 32m-long Citadis trams features five modules and is capable of carrying 209 passengers using both catenary and catenary-free technology (APS).

The low-floor vehicles will be equipped with electrical braking, LED lighting and passenger information system to ensure passenger convenience.

Earlier this month, Alstom received a contract to deliver 66 Citadis X05 trams to Morocco-based public transport authority Casa Transports.
