A consortium comprising Spanish construction and civil engineering firm Obrascon Huarte Lain (OHL), Samsung C&T and Qatar Building Company has secured a €1.1bn contract from Qatar Railway Company to build two metro stations in Doha.

The consortium will be responsible for the design and construction of the two stations at Msheireb and Education City.

Msheireb Station will be located in Downtown Doha, while a station will also be located in the centre of Doha’s Education City, a proposal of the Qatar Foundation (QF).

The Education City station will be connected to the proposed Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) rail network to connect students from across the region to Qatar’s higher education hub.

"The consortium will be responsible for the design and construction of the two stations at Msheireb and Education City."

Of the total contract, around €400m will be invested in civil engineering work, while the remaining will be used for carrying out electromechanical and architectural works.

The two new stations will serve as transfer points to different metro lines or other transportation modes, such as long-distance rail.

Construction of the Doha metro network will be carried out in phases and it will have four lines with 98 stations an overall length of 300km.
