During the event, Mooza al-Sowaidi, head of the Doha City Section at Ashghal’s Roads Projects Department, gave a brief presentation on the citizens’ new and existing sub-divisions projects, and benefits of the projects signed yesterday, which will provide about 281km of roads, more than 10,350 lighting poles and over 15,800 car parking slots.
In addition, sewage, surface and groundwater and TSE (treated sewage effluent) networks will be provided with a total length of 684km.





The presentation was followed by an online signing ceremony, where the contracts were signed simultaneously by Dr al-Muhannadi and the representatives of the companies concerned. The Ashghal president noted that a forum would be held in the coming period for the contractors of the projects and local manufacturers to enhance co-operation and co-ordination on supporting national products, ensuring their compliance with the authority’s standards and their ability to meet project needs, as well as ensuring that these projects are delivered in accordance with the schedule.
“It is noteworthy that as part of the authority’s keenness to support local products, and as Ashghal regards this as a high priority and a strategy to support the economy and achieve Qatar National Vision 2030, these new projects will rely to a higher degree on local manufacturers to provide all materials that can be supplied locally, including lighting poles and lamps, manholes, different types of drainage pipes, road marking and signs, traffic signal poles, interlock, kerbstone, bitumen, electricity cables, safety barriers and other materials,” the statement noted.
