Qatar receives bids for Lusail Expressway

Qatar’s Public Works Authority (Ashghal) has received bids from at least seven international contractors for the first package on the estimated £431M Lusail Expressway project

Ashghal received the bids from the contractors on 8 August, sister title MEED reported.

The bidders include:

  • Al-Habtoor Leighton (UAE/Australian)
  • Ferrovial (Spain)
  • Hyundai Engineering & Construction Company (South Korea)
  • Qatari Diar Vinci Construction (Local/French)
  • Saudi Binladin Group (Saudi Arabia)
  • Saudi Oger (Saudi Arabia)
  • Strabag (Austria)

The first package will be 5.8km in length and will have about 16 lanes, some of which will be two or three levels. The expressway will also include three major interchanges, slip roads, underpasses and bicycle lanes. Construction work will take 36 months to complete.

The first phase of the road project will run from the Arch roundabout to the area surrounding the Ritz Carlton hotel in Doha.

The second package, which has not yet been tendered, will run beside the Lusail mixed-use development and then on to the Pearl real-estate development. The expressway will be about 12km long when completed.

The Lusail Expressway is part of Qatar’s plans to invest £12.3bn on new roads and related drainage and infrastructure in the next five years.
