The six-year contract includes conceptualand detailed design for roads and infrastructure projects
Parsons Corporation recently announced today that the company has been selected to deliver design engineering consultancy services to Qatar’s Public Works Authority, more commonly known as Ashghal, for a new road and infrastructure framework.
The US$52mn, six-year contract, includes conceptual, preliminary, and detailed design for roads and infrastructure projects within Doha city.
“We are keen to work with Ashghal on transforming such a key part of Doha’s critical infrastructure in line with the country’s national strategy,” stated Pierre Santoni, President, Parsons MEA. “Frameworks like this will help improve access and decrease congestion, thereby decreasing transportation costs,” he added.
With a total population of just over three million, more than half of Qatar’s population lives in the capital city Doha. Establishing a new road and infrastructure framework supports the needs of current and future generations, which is one of the major challenges the Qatar National Vision 2030 aims to address.
Parsons first began working with Ashghal in 2002 and most recently collaborated with them to deliver transportation planning services for the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022, a press statement concluded.
