The scope covers 38.9 kilometres of roads, including the construction of new roads and junctions, and upgrading and widening existing roads.

Other infrastructure works include the installation of networks, facilities, equipment and apparatus for other utilities such as the state-run Qatar General Electricity & Water Corporation (Kahramaa) and telecoms firm Qtel.

QP is also planning a much larger road project that will provide a strategic link between Qatar’s industrial sites at Mesaieed, Dukhan and Ras Laffan (MEED 13:6:08).
