Qatar Integrated Railway Project

DB International and the Qatar Railway Company signed a letter of intent about the founding of a partnership “Qatar Railways Development Company (QRDC)” in November 2009. The QRDC will realize the elaborative railway concept for the emirate at the Persian gulf, developed by DB International and Qatari Diar.

The project is divided into the following sub-projects: construction of 4 subway lines with 98 stations and a total length of about 300 kilometres in the tunnel and a 180 kilometres long high speed track to Bahrain, with a planned maximum speed of 350 km/h. In addition a 100 kilometres long passenger transport route to Saudi Arabia will be constructed.

The total investment for the project which is going to be finalized very likely in the year 2026 amounts to 17 billion Euro. Based on the coming FIFA World Championship in 2022 in Doha, the biggest part of the railway net should be finalized even four years earlier.
