Transportation & Roads

Transportation has become one of the major challenges in the MENA region. With demand on the rise, there is an increasing need for robust, sustainable transportation solutions—be they new infrastructure or smarter systems, urban mobility solutions or intercity highways.

Engicon has accumulated an impressive backlog of competitive projects and specialized expertise in the various facets of transportation engineering and planning. Our innovative and tested solutions for this sector position us to be among the best.

Our experts have worked at different scales, from planning a national highway network to designing an intersection and from planning a road hierarchy for a mixed use development down to completing the detailed design of the various pavement layers.

We have also operated in various settings, designing highways that traverse deserts, ranges, and canyons and interchanges for a BRT system in a complex urban environment.

Transportation and Roads services we provide include:

  • Highways, bridges, underpasses, and complex interchanges
  • Geometric and pavement design
  • Stormwater drainage design and hydrological studies
  • Geotechnical engineering and soil stabilization
  • Traffic impact assessments
  • Transportation planning studies
  • Feasibility studies
  • Construction management and supervision

Sample Projects

Mafraq-Safawi-Karameh Road

Mafraq-Safawi-Karameh Road

Country: Jordan
Client: Ministry of Public Works & Housing
Year Completed: 2017

The Mafraq-Safawi-Karameh Road is a strategic corridor, as it represents the only land connection between Jordan and Iraq. It has a total length of 275 kilometers.

Engicon completed the detailed design and tender documents for the complete upgrading of the existing road into a four-lane separated highway with service roads in urban areas. In addition to key road design activities (geometry, drainage, electrical, and so on), work on this project included designing a number of level intersections and grade-separated interchanges, carrying out an environmental impact assessment, and preparing a detailed traffic study.

Food Security Facilities, Contract No. NPP/0085

Food Security Facilities, Contract No. NPP/0085

Country: Qatar
Client: APG Qatar – AGROTEC S.p.A
Year Completed: Ongoing

The New Port Project is a megaproject for the State of Qatar comprised of the new commercial Hamad Port, Qatar Emiri Naval Forces Base and Qatar Economic Zone 3 canal. Located approximately 25 kilometres south of Doha, the New Port Project occupies an area of 28.5 square kilometres of excavated and reclaimed lands.

The construction of Hamad Port is well advanced, with utilities, road corridors and operational areas in place. Design and Construction work associated with the Strategic Food Security Facility must take account of the existing infrastructure and operational and security activities so that there is no disruption to these provisions, arrangements and activities.

Utility and road capacities that are required for this facility shall be such that the existing infrastructure can be extended, or else provision of additional capacity shall be provided by the Contractor. The design of the facility shall take into account the possibility of additional throughput which will necessitate a Stage 2 of the Strategic Food Storage Facility. 

The Strategic Food Security Facility (SFSF) at Hamad Port will support the Qatar National Food Security Programme, as a fully functional stand-alone Terminal, by providing, as a minimum, capacity for the handling, storage, re-loading and transportation of edible bulk and palletised edible commodities, including but not limited to rice, sugars and edible oils. The Facility shall be comprised of bulk storage silos and/or warehouses with minimum 2-year storage for 3 million population capacities of each.

Engicon is tasked to provide the complete design services for infrastructure.
