Central Planning Office

Qatar’s 2030 vision includes programmes for education, health, science and sport, all of which must be connected by multimodal transport infrastructure.

A Central Planning Office (CPO) has been established to co-ordinate current and planned road, rail, metro and other major transport and infrastructure projects, including elements associated with the FIFA 2022 World Cup.

Faithful+Gould is supporting parent company Atkins, on a three-year contract to support Qatar’s delivery of its multi-billion dollar transport and infrastructure programmes. These programmes underpin Qatar’s 2030 vision for world class infrastructure development.

Atkins and Faithful+Gould via the CPO will be a single co-ordinating body which will be responsible for ensuring all works are planned in an integrated and efficient way to minimise disruption and maximise cost effectiveness. Atkins / Faithful+Gould’s project team draws upon a wide range of skills from rail to tunnelling, traffic planning to environment, urban design to cost estimating.
