What a great step for the resident and citizen of Qatar. I'm really really proud of this country who love to spend money on those things where people can get benefits and also the government. Thank you so much for this beautiful work and now we can travel from wakrah to Hamad International Airport because i'm working at airport so we can go anywhere now. But they will soon attach more lines and roads.
