Work on three metro stations is expected to begin soon as part of the Qatar Integrated Railway Project.

US$138m has been allocated for taking over land from private owners before starting work on stations in Msheireb, Al Rayyan and behind the Qatar National Museum.

Demolition plans have not been divulged by the authorities, but residents are expecting bulldozers to appear in different parts of Doha and its outskirts as the rail project counts more than 50 stations over its 129 km route.

Shops in Souq Khalid have been given notice to vacate and it is believed that the site will be demolished. Najma, Old Airport and Al Sadd areas have been targeted for demolition too. The first phase of the project is due to be operational by the end of 2019.
