The company has been awarded a $185m contract with Qatar Public Works Authority (Ashghal) to provide project management and construction supervision services for the Sharq Crossing.

Public interest in the project was revived after a YouTube video went viral that showed three bridges connecting different parts of the country. Sharq Crossing is Qatar’s ambitious development plan ahead of the 2022 FIFA World Cup.

The project will navigate Doha Bay and will comprise bridge sections interconnected by an immersed tube tunnel to create a new passageway beneath the waters of Doha Bay.

Completion of the project is expected by 2020 to support the run-up to the World Cup event. The project is being led from Fluor’s Doha office with support from the Abu Dhabi and Greenville, South Carolina, offices.
