True Global Best Practice & Local Knowledge Partnership
"Transforming Qatar into an advanced country” and providing it with “world-class infrastructure” are two of Qatar’s 2030 National Vision goals. Infrastructure readiness and availability is critical as Qatar seeks to achieve its vision and brand itself as a sports tourism destination. The Local Roads and Drainage Programme (LRDP) was launched in 2011 to provide world-class new infrastructure for new residential areas, in addition to developing and upgrading the existing infrastructure in central and suburban areas across Qatar. It also included the construction of link roads that connect several villages and towns.
As a programme management consultant (PMC), WSP managed the design and construction of more than 200 road and infrastructure projects to the highest local and international standards of safety and quality. WSP’s approach to managing this massive infrastructure programme was based on partnership with the Public Works Authority (Ashghal). Through this partnership, international expertise and local knowledge were combined, resulting in a legacy of success and best practice.
