Qatar Railways Company (Qatar Rail), the company overseeing the country's much-anticipated integrated rail network, is sponsoring the 30th Annual Gulf Traffic Week with the theme "Your Safety is Our Goal".

The event, which began yesterday and will conclude on March the 15th, aims to raise public awareness on traffic safety and discipline in the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) countries. Along with Qatar Rail, contractors of Doha Metro Green Line, the Austrian PORR, Saudi Bin Laden Group, and HBK Contracting Company, are also contributing in supporting the event.

Qatar Rail's sponsorship comes from its commitment towards society in promoting noble and just causes. This reflects its social responsibility in educating the general public on how society can be better off with safe and stress-free driving. Safety and discipline have been the guiding principles of Qatar Rail.

Held every year, GCC Traffic Week consolidates the concerted efforts and synergies of traffic departments in the member states towards traffic safety, which is a collective responsibility. Delegations from each state visit the other in order to understand the efforts taken by the respective governments in raising traffic awareness.
