Qatar Railways Company has announced the start of a new phase of work at Musheireb metro station after the primary structural steel components for the station has been put in place, with the work beginning to cover the stone roof cladding system.
Msheireb Station is one of the world’s biggest Metro stations, where three different lines will have an interchange point through which football fans will pass as they move between stadiums in 2022.
Qatar Rail in a tweet said that with the primary structural steel components for Msheireb Station already in place, external work has generally shifted to the installation of the stone roof cladding system.
Around 2,000 construction workers at the site are giving shape to the station on the Doha Metro network. The station will be one of 37 completed in the first phase as Qatar Rail aims at providing seamless transportation to fans for the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar.
Msheireb will be the main interchange station and will be completed as part of the three Doha Metro lines — Red, Green, and Gold — delivered in the first phase of the landmark nationwide infrastructure project.
