The Public Works Authority (Ashghal) has conducted a study on having a local rail network mainly for goods transport.

The proposed network would link Abu Samra to the new airport in Doha and the sea port via the Industrial Area.

The rail link would be 84.8 kms long from Abu Samra to the Industrial Area.

From the Industrial Area to the New Doha International Airport, the length of the network would be 16 kms.

There is also a study conducted on a rail link between the Industrial City and Messaieed Industrial City and the network would cover a distance of 35.2 kms.

The railway network, if set up, would be used to transport goods between these centres, curtailing the use of trucks and their nuisance on the busy city roads. i hope this gets built FAST
