The Private Engineering Office has opened the 'red' street, which is located within the boundaries of Al Bida Park and extends from Qatar National Theatre to the Emiri Diwan roundabout.

The street is the first of its kind in Qatar as it is covered with red asphalt.
The opening of the street is part of the Al Bida Park project, being supervised by the Private Engineering Office, which is expected to open by the end of this year.
The street can be controlled by automated roadblocks that can close it when needed in order to turn it into a pedestrian-only road, or to close it during important events such as Qatar National Day and Sport Day and global events such as the World Cup, especially as the park is one of the main areas to be allocated as a fan zone during the 2022 Fifa World Cup.
The street overlooks the main celebration platform on the Doha Corniche.
Al Bida Park extends over an area of about 2mn sqm and is one of the largest parks in the region. It includes a number of public service facilities, the most important of which are underground parking spaces for approximately 6,000 cars.
The park also features large gymnasiums, including one for women, in addition to outdoor exercise equipment, sports and open-air playgrounds, an open theatre for 850 spectators, as well as tracks for bicycle, horse and camel, water areas, and other recreational and service facilities.
