Indian conglomerate in deal to build $135m 40,000-capacity Al Rayyan stadium – report
The Indian construction giant Larsen & Toubro (L&T) has won a contract to build a $135 million stadium in Qatar for the 2022 World Cup, according to press reports.
“As part of a joint venture, L&T will serve as a contractor building the 40,000 seat Al Rayyan stadium,” a Qatari government official, who declined to be named, told Reuters.
L&T also holds other contracts in the Gulf region, including a deal to build a metro line in Doha. The company did not comment when contacted by Reuters.
It emerged in January that the Indian conglomerate’s Oman subsidiary had been awarded a $93.1 million contract to construct the terminal building and associated facilities for a regional airport in the Gulf state.
