The Qatar Foundation Tram is the first battery-powered tram system and the first rail project of its kind in Qatar. We are providing Project and Construction Management services for the Qatar Foundation Tram, managing the interface of all surrounding facilities.
The line is 11.5km long and connects the various facilities within Education City. The system contains an 800m tunnel under the Dukhan Highway and an elevated section (viaduct) of approximately 1.2km.
It's powered by on board super capacitors and batteries allowing the tram to charge at the 24 tram stops and stations that service the line. The tram stops are light, open cable net structures with air-conditioned waiting rooms on both sides.
Also included in this project is a corridor that includes the tram system and pedestrian footpaths, managed in coordination with other design and construction activities including road design, lighting, drainage, retaining walls, shade structures, signage, and soft and hard landscaping.
This project is located within Education City where the ‘Park and Ride’ scheme is being adopted, aiming to provide a more efficient and sustainable method of transportation, prohibiting the use of cars and vehicles and reducing overall traffic flow.
