The Ministry of Transport & Communications announced that the Doha Metro Red Line South will now be open on Weekends from Friday 27th Sept.
From Friday, September 27, the public can use the line from 14:00 to 03:00. Hopefully, this can benefit people who are planning to watch the IAAF World Championship midnight marathon on 27.
