Revealed: how Qatar’s Lusail tram project will look

By Staff  www.arabianbusiness.com

Alstom and Qatar Rail have unveiled the design of the Citadis tram of Lusail which will circulate on the 4-line tramway network.

The design of the Lusail tram, with its front shaped like the bow of a vessel, is inspired by the dhows, traditional boats of the area, the companies said in a statement.

Alstom, as part of a consortium, was awarded the contract by Qatar Railways in June 2014 for the engineering, procurement, construction, testing and commissioning of 4 tram lines, totalling 38km with 30 stations.

The Citadis tram for Lusail will accommodate 207 passengers in “common” and “family” classes and can be coupled to double its capacity.

The Citadis trams for Lusail will be manufactured in La Rochelle (France) for the first five trams and the remaining ones in Barcelona (Spain).

Abdulla Al Subaie, Qatar Rail’s managing director, said: “Deeply entrenched in Qatari culture and heritage, the Lusail tram designs celebrate the convergence of our country’s history with ground-breaking technologies and cutting-edge solutions.” More info
