The route crosses the city from east to west and work will include a total of 32km or bore tunneling with a diameter or six metres; the tunneling will be lined with approximately 128,000 segments; and there will be six tunnel boring machines (TBM) utilised simultaneously.

The project duration is 54 months and is due to be completed August of 2018.

A company statement said: “This project reinforces Aktor’s presence in Qatar and the Middle East as well as the strategic positioning as a leading international contractor.”
