DUBAI, UAE, January 20, 2011 - "Qatar Public Works Authority, Ashghal announced recently the launch of
four major road and sewerage projects at a total cost of QR 1.48bn", The
Peninsula, 11 January 2011

Qatar's decision to invest US$ 100 billion ahead of the 2022 World Cup
has lead to an upsurge of infrastructure projects. Eng. Nasser Ali Al
, Chairman of Qatar Public Works Authority, Ashghal has already
awarded 2 contracts worth US$ 251.48 million since the beginning of the year
and is still looking to tender more road projects in the coming months as
there is an ultimate deadline to meet.

According to a recent survey done by IQPC, the major challenges in road
construction are meeting project deadlines and upgrading the existing
construction techniques with latest technologies and materials. Finding
solutions to these issues will be of paramount importance in order to
complete these projects on time. Effective master-planning, futuristic road
designing, ensuring quality control and assurance in road construction are
some of the key solutions revealed.

Road Planning, Design and Construction Middle East have been initiated
under the patronage of Qatar Public Works Authority, Ashghal with an
imperative aim to aid the government in providing world-class road
infrastructure. Key road and transport experts from governments, national and
international contractors/consultants across the Middle East are
congregating at Oryx Rotana hotel in Doha, Qatar from 6-9 March 2011 to
engage in a variety of discussions focusing on recent projects and overcoming
