Aecom latest to score Qatari roads contract

Giant Aecom has joined the growing list of consultants to win one of the large transport contracts coming out of Qatar with the announcement yesterday that it will work on the $12M (£7.8M) design build contract to upgrade the country’s North Road, part of the wider Qatar Expressway program.

The program will see the creation of 550km of new expressway and service roads as part of a £12.94bn investment to improve the road network and enhance the country’s growing economy. Aecom will work on the 98km North Road, which connects the capital city of Doha with Madinat Al Shamal/Al Ruwais on the north coast.

As part of the two-year project, the Aecom team will improve accessibility of the road to reduce travel time between the two cities and improve the performance of the road by adding frontage streets and new interchanges as well as upgrading existing interchanges. The team is also designing the longest bicycle lane along the road.

Work on the project is set to begin immediately, with construction scheduled for completion during 2014.
