Kone wins contract for elevators, escalators for Lusail light rail

Construction of the Lusail Light Rail Transit (LRT) system is continuing, with the recent award of a contract to Finland-based Kone. The firm will fit out the network’s stations with 49 escalators, 82 elevators and eight moving walk-ways.

Officials have yet to set a launch date for the tram-based transport network, but ridership forecast documents suggest a 2019-2020 opening.
