Qatar Integrated Rail Programme
Qatar is investing $35 billion to construct an integrated rail network in time for the staging of the World Cup in 2022. The system includes a metro system in the nation’s capital, Doha and as well as LRT, people-movers and a freight railway connected to a wider international network.
Place Dynamix were part of the selected strategic management team to provide strategic advice for the program management and detailed design and ensure the network is constructed to world-class standards with superlative consumer experience, internationally noteworthy stations and lasting legacy value from destinations and transit oriented development for the beginning of the World Cup. Our specialist team are providing planning, urban design, transport and landscape architecture services to frame stations and the wider surrounds and ensure seamless connection for pedestrians to stadiums and thus increase ridership for the transit authority. Additionally, we are examining potential commercial opportunities around stadiums and considering the long term use of land around the stadiums post 2022.
