Upon completion, the Doha Metro which consists of four lines – red, green, gold and blue is expected to cover 211.9km over four railway lines through 85 stations. The rapid transit system is a crucial component of Qatar Rail and its network will cover the Greater Doha area, major commercial and residential areas and, will include connections to previously inaccessible areas. The increased connectivity is poised to improve traffic flow and allow Qatari’s to move around more fluidly. The line consists of almost 52km of track and spans from Msheireb (Central Station) through to Education City and on to Al Rayyan.
