Qatar Rail finishes Green Line tunnel project

Qatar Rail has announced the completion of its Green Line tunnel project.
Qatar Rail has completed tunneling on the Green Line with its tunnel-boring machine (TBM) Al Messila at Education City station.

Education City is the last underground station on the Green Line before the line moves towards the above ground station Al Riffa.

This milestone comes less than 10 days after completion of tunneling on the northern section of the Red Line.

"Completion of tunneling on the Green Line is yet another major milestone for the project and one we are delighted to have achieved ahead of schedule," Saad Al Muhannadi, CEO of Qatar Rail, said. "Across the project as a whole, we are continuing to make significant progress and as we prepare to move from the construction to systems and architectural works, we are delighted to have been able to achieve all this within the timelines and budgets allocated for this monumental endeavor. This has been possible due to the hard work and dedication of all parties involved."

Tunneling on the Doha Metro Green Line began in September 2014. Six TBMs were used to work on the 22-kilometer line.
