The Lusail Expressway project got a new award

Lusail Expressway got Global Best Project ENR Award


Tom Rousek was helping at AECOM London with architecture and design of this challenging project.

Lusail Expressway has won the 6th annual Global Best Project ENR 2018 award by Engineering News-Record (ENR), a reputed engineering and construction industry magazine, in the Road/Highway category.

Global Best Projects identifies and honours the project teams behind outstanding design and construction efforts of the past year.

“The judges picked a diverse set of 22 projects hailing from 14 different countries and every continent but Antarctica. These outstanding examples show the risks, rewards and hurdles overcome when designing and building internationally,” ENR said on their website.

“The judges looked at projects in many markets and examined safety performance, innovations, challenges, and design and construction quality – with a special emphasis on the diversity of global project teams and their collaboration. They also considered how the project benefits the local community and/or the construction industry.”

Lusail Expressway project includes the arches at Interchange 5/6, which are the biggest and tallest monument in Qatar with a height of 100 metres and width of 147 metres. It weighs more than 9,300 tonnes of steel.
