Ambitious plans for Doha

Grand Hamad street is to be closed to traffic and converted into the Grand Hamad Corridor, according to a Gulf Times article today. The corridor will include a tent covered galleria which will become the longest galleria in the world. The corridor will be designed by Pacific Consultants International, who have also proposed a 400 hectare forest area with lakes, gardens, a 100 meter hill and a motorized gondola with observation decks. The proposals are all part of the Urban Planning and Development Authorities Qatar National Master Plan.
