The Ministry of Transport in Qatar has reported a total of 1,662 transactions facilitated by the Land Transport Sector in the second quarter of this year. These statistics underscore the essential role of land transport in catalyzing Qatar’s economic growth, aligning with the nation’s Vision 2030.
Out of the total transactions, 711 were related to land transport planning, 572 concerned land transport licensing, while 379 transactions revolved around road affairs. The wide range of services provided by the land transport sector includes road defect detection, road safety, directional signage, traffic impact studies, and building permit requests, among others.
The sector also facilitates services such as the issuance of preliminary approvals for business activities involving limousines, land transport, and car rentals. Comparatively, the first quarter of 2023 saw a higher number of transactions, with a total of 2,748.
Land transport planning, a key function of the sector, establishes policies for land and railway transport activities. This includes preparing necessary studies, designing plans, and coordinating the construction and development of land and railway transport networks in cooperation with other relevant authorities.
The ongoing development of a comprehensive, effective transport system that incorporates advanced technologies not only serves the local sectors but also links Qatar to the larger regional and international economy. Initiatives like these ensure the orderly planning of new developments and improve the safety and security of Qatar’s transportation system.
These advancements, integrating intelligent transport technology, ‘smart’ cards, intelligent sensors and detection equipment, traveller information systems, and variable message signage, place Qatar on a par with its Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) counterparts.
This steady growth and enhancement in the transport infrastructure provide significant benefits for the hospitality industry. Improved connectivity and ease of transport enhance tourism, boosting demand for hospitality services.
