Austrian construction company Porr AG together with Saudi Arabia’s Bin Ladin Group and a local contractor, has secured the contact for the Green Line in Doha, one part of the new metro system in Qatar’s capital, at a total volume of $2.45 billion.

The contract comprises the design and construction of the line between Msheireb and Al Rayyan Stadium in the west of the city, with eight intermediate stations. A 16.6-kilometer twin tunnel will be constructed at an average depth of 20 meters.

The Green Line follows Al Rayyan Road connecting Education City with the Heart of Doha. Porr is already carrying out enabling works on the project.

For Porr, the contract is the largest ever in its history, the company said in an ad-hoc release to the Austrian stock exchange on June 12.

For the second route of Qatar’s new metro system, the Red Line, contracts were won by a consortium that includes the QDVC Qatari Diar/Vinci joint venture along with South Korean GS Engineering and Construction and a local firm.

The line runs between Doha city centre and the new Hamad International Airport.

In total, five tunneling and station box contracts worth a combined $9.5 billion are awarded to bring three metro lines up and running in time for Qatar to host the 2022 FIFA World Cup.

Qatar Rail has also confirmed that a consortium including Italian contractor Impregilo, South Korean firm SK engineering and Oman-based Galfar Engineering had been awarded the Red Line North Package. It will be responsible for constructing the 11.4 kilometers of underground tunnel needed for the northern section of the metro.
