From France to Qatar: The first set of trains for the Lusail tramway arrives.

By, 2018-03-13


Qatar Railways Company (Qatar Rail) received the first Lusail Tram at Hamad Port early this morning. Departing from Alstom factory in the French City of La Rochelle to Barcelona, the trams arrived today on schedule after 18 days to Doha.


Once it’s off loaded at Hamad Port, the trains will head towards its final destination at the main depot where it will be assembled and tested to be ready for the operational phase of the project. The tram will go under a number of technical tests to ensure the highest standards of safety are met. It is worth mentioning that the train was previously examined for “manufacturing acceptance” at Alstom factory in France in the presence of the Minister of transport and  Communications and some of the senior management representatives in the company.



“The arrival of the Tram marks the beginning of a new phase. Lusail Tram project is well under way; the work is on-going right now toward the completion of the stations construction as we aim to deliver the project within the assigned timeline and underpinned by our commitment to deliver a modern and sustainable transport network for Lusail city,” Abdulla Abdulaziz Al Subaie, Qatar Rail’s Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer, said.


Lusail Tram connects to the Doha Metro through two interchange stations at Lusail and Legtaifiya. The 35.4 km long Lusail Tram Network will launch in 2020. The network includes four lines and 28 stations aboveground and underground. The Lusail Tram project progress currently stands at 73%.
