Qatar to build metro system

Qatar, which officially launched its bid to host the summer Olympics last week, is planning to build a metro system in the capital city of Doha, reported the Peninsula. Qatar plans to spend billions of dollars to revamp its infrastructure regardless of whether its Olympics bid is successful, including a 140-kilometre light rail system, a number of multi-lane motorways, extensions to road networks and improvements to the Doha bus system.
