Qatar’s Ministry of Transport and Communication announced the opening of the new Doha Metro Red Line South. The Red Line South will be operational on Wednesday, May 8th.
The Doha Metro Red Line South is part of the overall Doha Metro project that is being developed by Qatar Rail. The main purpose of Doha Metro is to provide integrated railway services that are reliable and accessible to all.
In this case, the Red Line South runs from Lusail to Al Wakra, and connects Hamad International Airport with Doha. The Red Line South will create greater inter-connectivity for local communities and for tourists as well.
As of now, only 13 out of the 18 Red Line stations will be operational and open to the public.
Lastly, the completion of Doha Metro Red Line South will complement Qatar’s preparations to host the FIFA World Cup 2022 and the country’s overall progress in modernizing its transportation infrastructure.
