CH2M HILL Halcrow has been awarded a consultancy services contract to manage the operation and maintenance of roads for Qatar’s Public Works Authority, Ashghal.

In line with Qatar’s National Road Safety Action Plan, the firm will provide various technical resources and locate a number of transport specialists at Ashghal’s offices to help implement a series of road safety improvement programmes, including those affecting pedestrians, schools, rural roads and intersections.

The safety improvement projects will vary in scope and complexity ranging from relatively minor improvements, such as better signage, to large scale upgrades like new pedestrian bridges or construction of additional lanes.

Max Clark, CH2M HILL’s transportation business development lead, MENAI, said: “CH2M HILL’s global transport planning experience and growing involvement in O&M and asset management projects in the Middle East made it the most qualified engineering consultancy to work with Ashghal to improve road safety in Qatar.”

The program will be delivered over the next five years and has a budget of QAR600mn ($164.7mn).

Steve Kinghorn, CH2M HILL’s project coordinator and transportation leader in Qatar, added: “This is a crucial goal for our client and we are determined to help deliver on this by bringing together our best specialists and practices from across the world.”
