Work entails construction of roads and sewage networks

The Lusail Real Estate Development Company has awarded the final phase of the CP07A-1A Waterfront Commercial/Seef Lusail South Infrastructure works contract to a consortium comprising local firms HBK Contracting and Qatar Building Company.

The scope of work entails the construction of highway roads for the South of Seef Lusail Waterfront Commercial, including paving of footpaths and the installation of street lights, signs, traffic signals and equipment for speed radars.

In addition to the development of sewage networks, storm water, and potable water and irrigation systems, the works will also include the development and connection of power grids and telecommunications networks, as well as connections to central water, gas, district cooling, and waste management networks.

The contract will also see the joint venture construct adjoining intersections to the Lusail ring road, as well as railway lines and bridges linking the waterfront with the Qatar Entertainment City.

The Lusail development is one of the biggest real estate schemes in the Middle East. Located 22 kilometres north of Doha, it covers a total area of 35,000 square kilometres and is planned to house up to 200,000 people. The development is a key part of Qatar’s Fifa 2022 World Cup plans and will accommodate the Lusail stadium where the final will be played.
