Qatar to house 250,000 labourers in new 'cities'

Foreign laborers at the al-Wakrah stadium construction site on May 4, 2015Qatar is to build seven “cities” to house more than a quarter of a million migrant labourers building major infrastructure and projects for the 2022 World Cup, officials said Tuesday. Government officials said all seven should be built by the end of 2016 and that the largest, “Labour City” for 70,000 people and complete with its own 24,000-seat cricket stadium, will begin housing workers in the next few weeks. The move to construct more modern facilities comes amid continued criticism of the accommodation provided by Qatar for the vast number of migrant workers and with Doha admitting that sub-standard and illegal living conditions are still being used. In total, 258,000 workers — some 25 per cent of Qatar’s migrant labourer population — will be housed, officials said.
