Qatar Government Currently Tendering out Road Projects

DUBAI, UAE, January 21, 2011/PRNewswire/ -- "Qatar Public Works Authority, Ashghal announced recently the launch of four major road and sewerage projects at a total cost of QR 1.48bn", The Peninsula, 11 January 2011

Qatar's decision to invest US$ 100 billion ahead of the 2022 World Cup has lead to an upsurge of infrastructure projects. Eng. Nasser Ali Al Mawlawi, Chairman of Qatar Public Works Authority, Ashghal has already awarded 2 contracts worth US$ 251.48 million since the beginning of the year and is still looking to tender more road projects in the coming months as there is an ultimate deadline to meet.

According to a recent survey done by IQPC, the major challenges in road construction are meeting project deadlines and upgrading the existing construction techniques with latest technologies and materials. Finding solutions to these issues will be of paramount importance in order to complete these projects on time. Effective master-planning, futuristic road designing, ensuring quality control and assurance in road construction are some of the key solutions revealed.

Road Planning, Design and Construction Middle East have been initiated under the patronage of Qatar Public Works Authority, Ashghal with an imperative aim to aid the government in providing world-class road infrastructure. Key road and transport experts from governments, national and international contractors/consultants across the Middle East are congregating at Oryx Rotana hotel in Doha, Qatar from 6-9 March 2011 to engage in a variety of discussions focusing on recent projects and overcoming the challenges in designing, planning and constructing roads.
