Bombardier has unveiled plans to build a train plant in Qatar if it wins the $1.8bn Lusail light rail project, a system that will link parts of the country’s yet-to-be-built Lusail City.

Upon approval, the company will build a train assembly plant, which is expected to take about six to eight months to assemble, and will take place during the light rail project’s design process.

The company is expecting a decision about the project by the end of this year, but accepts that the decision may be delayed until early 2012.

The company is also planning to bid for the $41 billion Doha Metro project, a planned four-line rail system linking stadia for the 2022 World Cup.

According to Bombardier, the new plant is expected to meet the requirement of the two rail projects in Qatar, in addition to other projects that the country is planning to start.
