Au Qatar, SYSTRA conçoit le futur tram de Lusail - Société d'ingenierie leader du transport public urbain/ferroviaire (bus, métro, tramway, etc.) – SYSTRA France & international

Voulu extrêmement efficace, ce tramway devra être en mesure d’irriguer une ville d’environ 200 000 habitants et de servir plus de 400 000 utilisateurs annuels. Pour relever ce défi, le choix s’est porté sur un tramway circulant en surface en partie nord, et en souterrain dans la partie sud, plus dense. D’une longueur totale de 35 km, le tramway cheminera tour à tour en surface sur 26 km, en tunnel sur 8 km et en viaduc sur 1 km, à la fois en double voie et en simple voie.

Les quatre lignes de ce réseau de tramway desserviront 37 stations, dont 8 sous la surface, 1 sur viaduc, 2 en tranchées ouvertes, 2 en tranchées couvertes. Un rôle de Lead Designer Pour ce projet, SYSTRA travaille depuis 2009 comme Responsable d’études pour l’entreprise QVDC (Qatar Diar Vinci Construction).
