IDOM has been working with the Ministry of Transportation and Telecommunications (MTT) of the Kingdom of Bahrain on designing Phase 1 of the Bahrain Metro.
The Bahrain Metro is a fully automated, driverless system that will provide the user with memorable journeys through the main residential, business, administration and leisure spots in the Kingdom.
An integral, efficient, safe public transport system
The Red and Blue lines that make up the Phase 1 of the new Metro System run a total of 28.6 km. At peak time, up 43,000 passengers will be served. Being developed under a PPP scheme by the MTT, the metro will have 20 stations (2 interchange) and a depot/stabling facility.
Phase 1 is the starting point for the implementation of the Bahrain Urban Transit Network Project (BUTN) which will have 4 lines and 109 km. IDOM has also designed the layout of the entire BUTN network (under development until 2055).
On February 2018, IDOM won Bahrain Project of the Year Award from Institution of Civil Engineers ICE in recognition of the work developed on this project.
