The Doha Metro will be one of the most advanced rail transit systems in the world. It will have four lines – namely the Red, Green, Gold and Blue metro lines – planned over a total length of approximately 240 km, and will feature 106 stations over the whole network. Designed to cover the Greater Doha area, the Metro will be underground for the central city networks, and will mainly be at ground level or elevated whilst at the outskirts.
ACTS deployed 16 drilling rigs, state-of-the art field testing equipment, and six geophysical teams comprised of expert geophysicists. The work package included pumping tests and necessary in-situ tests at the stations and along the tunnel/elevated structures alignment, in addition to its geotechnical investigations and geophysical survey (for cavity mapping) assignments.
The project is on-going, and the expected date of completion is end of 2019.
