Qatar’s Public Works Authority moves forward with road improvement projects

The third phase of the “Qualification of Small-Scale Qatari Contractors” (Ta’heel) initiative is now a go.

The Public Works Authority (Ashghal) announced that four contracts will be launched and signed for more road improvement projects after the first two phases were a success. The four contracts will have a total value of approximately QR100mn, and will be signed on October for the third phase.

With this initiative, Qatari companies can participate and do their part in contributing to a wide range of development projects all over the country. This includes grading works, drainage facilities, enhancing traffic safety, building construction, road pavement, and construction of pedestrian lanes for the overall safety of all citizens on the road. With these projects—even without any previous experience in road construction or in maintenance required—more investors both foreign and local in the construction sector will be able to grab the opportunity to help implement initiatives regardless of scale. These small projects will offer investors the invaluable chance to qualify to be part of the strategic projects of the country for the future, and contribute to the development of the local economy as a whole.

The goal of Ashghal is to close the tender for these projects by the end of the year in December. By the first quarter of 2020, road improvement works will be launched. In the first contract, road improvement projects will be in the following geographical areas: Umm Slal, Al Daayen, and Al Shamal Municipalities, while the second contract will involve the locations within Doha Municipality. In the third contract, the geographical boundaries of Al Wakrah Municipality will be included, and finally, the fourth contract involves road improvement works within Al Rayyan and Al Sheehaniya Municipalities.
