QATAR RAIL RECEIVES FIRST BATCH OF METRO TRAINS

Qatar Railways Company has received the first batch of the Doha Metro trains on Saturday, two months ahead of schedule, at Hamad Port after 21 days at sea since their departure from Japan’s Kobe Port.

The batch includes four out of a total of 75 trains that will serve the Doha Metro project. The remaining trains will arrive as scheduled to start the testing process and be ready in time for the first phase of operations by 2020.

The trains are to be transported to Qatar Rail’s Al Wakra Depot at a later time where they will be reassembled and tested in readiness for the operational phase. All the necessary tests will be conducted on Qatari soil to ensure the highest standards of safety are met under Qatar Rail’s direct supervision.
