Do you remember your building number ?

| About Qatar | September 10, 2013

 

20130823_204643

For the first comer in Doha it can be very difficult to find the location of a building.

The smaller streets in the neighborhoods can be so labyrinthine that no one bothers to remember street names. I can maybe name twenty streets in the entire city. I have no idea of the name of the street that I live on, nor the street next to it. Pretty much everyone only knows the main streets like the Corniche, the ring roads, Salwa Road, etc. Navigation becomes an exercise in remembering landmarks. Directions are usually about being near somewhere or in some neighborhood, such as, “near Crazy Signal, behind the car dealership”, or “in Al-Sadd, close to Sports Roundabout”, and so on. It can be a problem if you get a taxi but aren’t sure exactly where you’re destination is – the taxi driver probably will not know either unless it’s a well known place.

This can also create a problem for Emergency Services, how are they to know where you are?

So the Government has been doing an ad campaign asking people to memorize their building numbers so that they can give it to emergency services.

Number of Expats in Qatar

| About Qatar | September 2, 2013

 

Percent of expats in GCC

It’s not hard to notice in any GCC country that the number of expats is huge.

But just how big a piece of the pie do they represent? According to data (which was gathered from various sources and is not 100% accurate, but comes pretty close) in Oman and Saudi Arabia, the percent is around 30%. On the other end, UAE and Qatar have a whooping 85% of its population coming from abroad. It would be interesting to see the exact make up of these countries by nationality, unfortunately the Governments do not make this data available to the public.

Undersea tunnel to link West Bay with airport

DOHA: A project is underway to link the West Bay area with the Hamad International Airport (HIA) through an undersea tunnel.

This will be one of the major projects to be implemented in the coming years linking Doha south, central Doha and Doha north, Al Sharq reported yesterday.

The project will start from West Bay near to the City Center as a two-lane bridge in both directions towards the sea and then become a tunnel under the sea leading to the airport.

It will meet a second subway starting from the new airport road with a three-lane undersea tunnel leading to New Doha.

The third segment of the project starts from Lusail with three lanes in each direction, with a bridge and undersea tunnel leading to New Doha. All these lanes will join at one point under the sea off the Corniche.

The tunnel will have sub-lanes linking some key tourist destinations such as the Museum of Islamic Art, Doha Sheraton and Katara, said the daily. The project also includes several entertainment venues for people using the tunnel.
