“Water Taxi”… How will fans reach the Ras Abu Aboud stadium during the Qatar World Cup and Arab Cup?

Doha: Engineer Mohammed Abdullah Al-Mulla, Director of the Ras Abu Aboud World Cup Stadium Project Department, confirmed that a plan is being developed to activate the water taxi from the stadium’s waterfront during the World Cup in 2022.

Eng Al Mulla said that a corniche was built in front of the stadium, linking with the main Doha Corniche. The corniche would be ready during the Qatar World Cup as well.

In response to a question, are there alternative plans for the fans to reach the stadium? Al-Mohannadi Al-Mulla replied: The Doha Metro will be the main means of transportation for fans to reach the stadium. It is only 700 meters away from the stadium, with a capacity of about 15,000 spectators during the match day.

Parking is also available along the second side of the main street in Ras Abu Aboud. There are 3,000 parking spaces in the area, and pedestrians can cross safely between them and the stadium through the parking lots.

The Director of Ras Abu Aboud Stadium Project Management indicated that choosing the stadium site was part of a well-thought-out and comprehensive plan, which took into account many requirements such as ease of movement to the stadium and the distance separating it from the rest of the stadiums and many other criteria that take into account the geographical peculiarity of the State of Qatar, such as proximity to highway networks, metro station and Hamad International Airport, which is only 4 km from the stadium building.

The land on which the project is being built was previously the Qatar Petroleum headquarters and was used for launching flights to offshore platforms. They inspired the design of the stadium, which is distinguished by its industrial features, as well as the historical location of Qatar Petroleum.

Ras Abu Aboud Stadium is the first stadium that can be completely dismantled after the FIFA World Cup ends. Qatar’s sustainability efforts will be enhanced by reducing waste during construction or manufacturing. As a result, it is dismantled completely and donated to construction projects in some countries.
