Qatar’s Hamad Port will begin an expansion soon, after QR2 billion worth of contracts were recently awarded, the government said this week.
The Ministry of Transport and Communications (MOTC) tweeted about the new contracts yesterday. It said they were for the second stage of works on the port.
But they did not give further details about the companies who were awarded the deal or the timeline for development.
The MOTC also announced yesterday the start of what it called the Qatar-India Express Service.
This will link Hamad Port with the Indian ports of Mundra and Nhava Sheva, which is near Mumbai and is India’s largest container port.
