Lusail Expressway has won the Engineering News Record (ENR) award for 2018 Global Best Project in the Roads / Highway category.
The Lusail Expressway project is marked by the 5/6 Interchange, which has the highest landmark in Qatar, 100 meters high arches. The arches consist of 54 large steel pieces, which created a great engineering challenge starting with the design of the unique intertwined and tilted arches that needed extreme accuracy to be installed correctly, to the great size of the arches and their leaning angle.
Lusail Expressway is one of the most important projects implemented by the Public Works Authority’s Expressway programme. It is located in a vital area linking Doha to Lusail City and includes many destinations from the Pearl in the north to Katara and the Diplomatic Area, and a large number of residential neighborhoods, commercial and business facilities.
