Qatar will re-launch the Sharq Crossing project, linking Ras Abu Aboud and West Bay as part of its prioritised infrastructure development and will also see new projects worth QR11.5bn to be awarded in 2020.

An announcement on the Sharq Crossing (formerly Doha Bay crossing) came in the 2020 budget, which was presented on Monday. The project is expected to be completed within four years.

The Sharq Crossing master plan had been developed by Santiago Calatrava in 2013 at the request of the Ministry of Municipal Affairs and Urban Planning (MMUP) and features a unique combination of an efficient civil engineering solution and a highly iconic design.

The master plan features a major traffic connection linking the Airport area with the West Bay Financial District and the Cultural City. Substituting the formerly proposed tunnel only system, Santiago Calatrava had designed a solution with a bridge at each of the three ends of the tunnel system.
