The Doha Metro, being one of the most prominent and visible projects in Qatar, will serve both the capital and its ‘suburbs with stops on all major locations. The metro system will be built in two phases: the first will see the construction of three out of the four lines (Red, Gold, and Green) totaling 37 stations. These lines are expected to be open to the public by 2020. The second phase will be completed by 2026, and will involve the expansion of the Phase One lines, and the construction of the additional Blue Line with another 72 stations.
Stations play an important part – both practically and culturally – of any metro system. Architecturally, the stations will reflect the heritage of the country, with a ‘vaulted space’ design inspired by traditional Bedouin tents. The largest station, Musheireb, will fall at the heart of the Doha Metro with the Red, Green and Gold lines all meeting at this point.
