Sharq Crossing, Industrial Area projects by Ashghal highlighted

The Public Works Authority (Ashghal) recently hosted an Industry Engagement day to keep engineering and contracting firms informed about opportunities to participate in one of the most technologically advanced infrastructure programme, the Sharq Crossing.

Comprising three iconic bridges interlinked with two immersed tunnels and a marine tunnel interchange involving Doha Bay, the project will connect Hamad International Airport with city’s cultural district of Katara in the north and Downtown Central Business District of West Bay.

The event involves participation of contracting, consulting, operations and maintenance organisations registered in and outside Qatar, and also saw the presence of Eng. Nasser bin Ali al Mawlawi, President, Public Works Authority, Brig Eng. Yacoub al Kazem, Sharq Crossing Programme Director, Asghal’s team of representatives of Calatrava Mideast Ltd and Fluor Corporation.

Work on the project will begin in 2015 and will end in 2021. A brief presentation was given to participants offering programme-specific information like the proposed work, time-frame, and implementation aspects. Information on tendering requirements, procurement strategy for bidding process, etc., were also given.

Meanwhile, Ashghal has also entered its final phase on the ‘Industrial Area Road project’, with nearly 80 percent of the works completed. The first phase is likely to open in June 2014 with several roads, bridges and tunnels likely to open to traffic.

Contracting companies are completing pavements of main roads, and installation of lamp posts are being completed along the main roads, and heavy machines are working overnight to meet deadline.
