Urban Rail Coming to Qatar For World Cup

As Qatar prepares to host the 2022 World Cup, officials there have announced plans to build an urban rail network to link its 12 World Cup venues.

The 340km system will be based around Doha, which is in close proximity to all of the venues.

"The 12 World Cup tournament venues are concentrated within a 60 km radius of Doha and will all be served by the rail network, 70% of which should be operational in 2020. The bid emphasised the provision of environmentally-friendly public transport, free of charge for match ticket holders, based on short transfers between the stadia, hotels and other facilities in Greater Doha."
