The Public Works Authority (Ashghal) has invited tender for the design, implementation and dismantling of bridges for Palm Island, located opposite the Doha Sheraton Hotel from the south, and surrounded by sea water on all sides.
The island used to have a small resort, and a restaurant, to receive visitors, but it is no longer exploited as a tourist destination.
The island has a history in the tourism renaissance that Qatar witnessed, and citizens and residents demand that it be used as a better tourist centre than it was.
The Ashghal tender opens the door for re-using the island for tourism, as it was considered one of the most important tourist attractions in Qatar.
