The contract involves providing management consultancy services for all elevated and at-grade sections of the metro project.

A Louis Berger Egis Rail joint venture has bagged the contract to provide project management consultancy services for the Doha Metro project, the company said in a statement.

Valued at $79 million, the contract involves providing management consultancy services for all elevated and at-grade sections of the metro project.

The contracted sections are approximately 16 kilometres in length and include the Red Line North and South and the Green Line of Doha Metro.

These sections are also expected to connect to FIFA compliant stadiums that are being developed for the Football World Cup in 2022.

The Doha Metro project, part of the overall Qatar Integrated Railway Programme, is approximately 216 kilometres in length and stretches across four lines (Red, Green, Gold and Blue). With a total construction value of $36 billion, the project has 100 stations planned along the line.

The Louis Berger Egis Rail JV was initially commissioned in August 2012 to provide project management consulting services for the underground sections and other major stations in the Doha metro project.

In 2013, it was also commissioned to provide independent certification engineer services, which covered early enabling works along with utility diversions, the statement said.

Qatar’s rail projects had previously come under scrutiny after a number of delays in awarding the contracts, which subsequently pushed back the date of construction.

However the rail authorities have sped up the process over the last two years, awarding a number of contracts and opening the tender for various phases.

In 2013, Qatar awarded four design-and-build contracts worth about $8.2 billion for phase one of the Doha Metro project.

Recently, the government also awarded a systems package for the metro to a five-member consortium consisting of Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, Mitsubishi Corporation, Hitachi, The Kinki Sharyo Co and Thales.
