Fast Track Tunnelling

111 km of tunnels were excavated during the construction of Qatar's new Metro system, taking just under two years to complete.

Tunnelling began in July 2014 at the site of Al Qasser Station on the Red Line. The final breakthrough at Hamad International Airport, completing all tunnelling, was on the 25th September 2016.
