Atkins wins $135mn Doha Metro Gold Line deal.
Atkins has announced that it has been appointed as lead designer for the Gold Line of the Doha Metro in Qatar.

The consultancy, which last year won a $120mn commission to design three of the six lines of the $23.5bn development, revealed that the win is worth around $135.5mn to the company over the lifespan of the five-year project.

In a statement updating the London stock exchange on its financial performance, it said its Middle East operations "has enjoyed a strong start to the new financial year as we continue to deliver work on a number of significant metro projects and benefit from increased activity in the property market", before going on to reveal its win for the Gold Line.

The total cost of the Gold Line project has been put at around $4.2bn. The consortium of contractors charged with its delivery was appointed in April and is led by Greek firm Ellaktor, alongside Yapi Merkezi and STFA from Turkey, India's Larsen & Toubro and local Qatari company Al Jaber Engineering.

The Gold Line is the most challenging of the five contract packages to be awarded for phase one of the Doha Metro, which is set to complete in 2019, some three years ahead of Qatar's 2022 World Cup.
