Qatar received the first Doha metro trains

The first four trains that will run on the Doha Metro network arrived in Qatar, in what is a landmark moment for the infrastructure project. This is the first batch of 75 trains that will run on the new driverless rail network, which opens to the public in early 2020.

According to Qatar Rail, the trains will be transported to Al Wakrah depot, reassembled and then tested to ensure safety standard.

When Phase 1 of the network launches in 2020, a total of 37 stations will operate across three lines – Red, Green and Gold. All the trains on the metro will be driverless and fully automatic, similar to the Dubai Metro.

Each will have three carriages, and are being manufactured by Kinki Sharyo company, based in the Japanese city of Osaka.
