07:00 EDT Monday, June 17, 2013

LOS ANGELES (Business Wire) -- AECOM Technology Corporation (NYSE: ACM), a leading provider of professional technical and management support services for public and private clients in more than 140 countries around the world, announced today that it has been awarded a US$148-million, three-year contract to provide construction-supervision and design-review services for the portion of the Doha Expressway program in Qatar known as Group 7.

The new dual highway will link the cities of Al Khor and Mesaieed. The program covers the creation of a 105-mile expressway — which will help facilitate movement of sea freight into and out of the New Port Project in Doha as well as ease the movement of trucks and delivery vehicles around the city.

The project will also feature foot and cycle paths, as well as a provision for a long-distance rail corridor. In addition, approximately 21 main free-flow junctions will be required, along with a number of priority-controlled junctions and private accesses.

“We are delighted to play such a vital role in advancing Qatar's infrastructure,” said AECOM Chairman and Chief Executive Officer John M. Dionisio. “We look forward to playing a key role in creating a best-in-class infrastructure network that will help fuel the region's growth.”

Work on the project is set to begin immediately.
