QATAR Railways, which is responsible for the construction of Doha's 354km four-line metro, has awarded a €506m contract to a consortium led by FCC, Spain, to build a section of the Red Line.

The FCC consortium, whose members comprise Archirodon, Greece, Yüksel, Turkey, and Petroserv, Qatar, will build a 7km elevated section with three stations at the southern end of the line. Construction is expected to take 31 months.

A group led by Impregilo, Italy, won a contract last year to construct a 13km underground section of the Red Line.
