The Ministry of Transport and Communications (MOTC) has announced that its truck parking project in Al Shamal area is now open and operational, spanning an area of 75,000 sqm, and providing 285 parking spaces that can accommodate all types of trucks.

Strategically located near Al-Ruwais Port in addition to being modern and easy to access, the parking facility will save freight movement time by providing seamless connectivity to expressways, also having a great impact on truck and traffic safety.

MOTC earlier assigned Qatar Ports Management Company (Mwani Qatar) to do the project design and execution in line with the world's best standards and specifications. The company will also manage and operate the project for the first year.

The project forms part of a larger MOTC plan for establishing and developing four truck parking facilities in key areas across the country. The aim is to modernize and improve mobility and transportation services countrywide in accordance with the Qatar Public Transport Program (QPTP).
