Qatar: Parsons Wins Consultancy Contract for Qatar Long Distance Rail Design

Parsons, in a joint venture with Systra, announced that it was awarded a consultancy services contract for the design of the Qatar Long Distance Railway Network.

The network will provide freight and passenger services nationally within Qatar and internationally to the neighboring countries of Saudi Arabia and Bahrain. This 248.5-mi section, which includes six freight facilities, a depot, and seven passenger stations, will be integrated with the new Doha Metro and is also part of the Gulf Cooperation Council rail network.

“This design consultancy project is of strategic importance to the State of Qatar in meeting its national vision, and we look forward to working with Qatar Railways Company to begin work on the project early this year,” said Guy Mehula, Parsons MEA president.
