Blockade won't affect infrastructure projects: Ashghal
June 20 2017 09:40 PM


No ongoing or future infrastructure development works in Qatar are going to be affected by any issues arising out of the economic and land blockade enforced by some of its Gulf neighbours, said Ashghal president and senior engineer Saad bin Ahmed al-Muhannadi.

Replying to a query from Gulf Times, the official said the contractors executing some of the major infrastructural development works have assured the Qatari authorities that they have adequate stocks of construction materials in their warehouses to carry out their activities for about a year.
"The materials that used to reach the country by road earlier are now being brought by ships and that too in large quantities," he said while adding that some of the major Ashghal contractors have informed that more materials for further construction activities would be sourced from such countries as China, India, Oman and Kuwait in the coming days.
Al-Muhannadi also said at least four major vessels carrying building materials among other cargoes are calling on the Hamad Port in the coming weeks. There has been a steady movement of vessels carrying construction materials from Sohar and Salalah ports in Oman to Hamad Port, he added.
