Atkins wins £70M Qatar transport contract

Consultant Atkins has this week won a £70M three-year contract to provide transport infrastructure services to the Qatar Ministry of Municipality and Urban planning.

Under the contract, Atkins will establish a Central Planning Office (CPO) to co-ordinate current and planned road, rail, metro and other major transport and infrastructure projects, including improvements ahead of the FIFA 2022 World Cup.

The CPO will co-ordinate Qatar’s 2030 vision which includes programmes for education, health science and sport, all of which must be connected by multimodal transport infrastructure.

Atkins chief executive Uwe Krueger said the latest contract win strengthens the firm’s position in the region. Today’s contract follows on from last month’s £65M contract win providing roads and drainage services in the Qatari capital Doha.
