Woqod to introduce mobile fuel-tankers soon

Woqod to introduce mobile fuel-tankers soon

Qatar Fuel (Woqod) has acquired some 20 specially-built fuel tankers to work as mobile filling stations in areas that urgently need their services.

More of these mobile fuel filling facilities are being acquired to be deployed in localities that have no petrol stations as a temporary measure.

The move apparently follows pressure from public representatives to provide petrol filling facilities in different areas of the country where petrol stations have been demolished.

The Central Municipal Council (CMC) recently discussed the issue and urged the Ministry of Municipality and Urban Planning to not demolish filling stations any more.

Meanwhile, motorists using the Corniche Street are facing a tough time in filling up their cars as the Port Petrol Station, the only fuel station along the street, has stopped operations recently and will be demolished soon.

Motorists complain that at any given time of the day a petrol station is crowded with vehicles and queues are sometimes frustratingly long.

Woqod is, for instance, building a new petrol station near the General Post Office, which is expected to be operational in 2016. [The Peninsula]

some suggestions:

1. If coming from Wukair to Dafna only one petrol station at pearl r/a. One petrol station is required between Barwa village - Cornish express way.

2. Karwa d/s - Vakra road

3. Mesaeed wakra road

4. al nasr street - suburbs

5. khalifa stadium road (all fuel stations are located in same side)

6. New Industrial Area - Doha road
