I agree with WT. Considering how much money was spent on the roads, why are they STILL so congested? And the 'new' airport is already full of long lines and massive delays.

Qatar deserves the best, but has purchased the ordinary.

Sorry WT how do you think you are using doha expressway, and salwa road, and D, E and F rung roads, and Hamad International Airport, and Education City, and the new Doha Port, and all the new clinics, and the fact that you have water in your taps all the time even though the population doubled in less than 10 years.?

All these things were paid for by the money made in the last 10 years. And with respect to the "vanity objects " lots of them are investments that the country and can now use to borrow money at very competitive rates.

Was there waste? Yes but not as much as you are belivinng, also there was lots and lots of very smart investments in infrastructure and future assets

Traffic congestion is an economic factor. Energy and time are wasted which leads to less productivity. But, has productivity ever been an issue in Qatar? Not until now, because the money spilled out from the wells without much effort. Considering the low price for commodities these days, productivity will become a factor for the economic success of Qatar. The money made in the last ten or twenty years should (!) have been used to provide the infrastructure for the coming generations. Unfortunately the money went abroad for the purchase of vanity objects.

Congestion happens all over the world - key is to give yourself ample time for the journey and be patient .. You're not the only one suffering

The police can help by being more active and actually prosecuting idiots who flout the laws
