Located at the southern end of the under-construction Lusail Expressway, on the site of the old Rainbow (Arch) roundabout, the Al Wahda Arches were being built for Ashghal. The bigger one has a length of 150 metres and a maximum height of 100 metres, while the smaller one will span across 140 metres in length with a maximum height of 80 metres.

The suspended visitors’ centre will measure 85 metres in length and 21 metres in height, completing the shape of the new Doha landmark.
