Let's think 12 years into the future. Big sport events always triggered some easement in visa policies in the country of event and in neighbourhood (like in RSA or China). I'm sure, that it will be much easier then.

Who exactly will go there with his car? (except other arabs if they qualify).

(what they have, and little upgrade could be enough)

The priority should be mass transit and airports.

Oh wow. Country sure has changed some since '06! Every major route was still connected by roundabouts and road works were everywhere. Too bad the roundabout in the industrial area was replaced by a flyover; an old small fort was destroyed when the interchange was built.

The fort was just a decoration (model), no historical significance whatsoever.

These roads are built for the future. They also have various 10 - 12 lane motorways in Dubai which are now outside the urban area (hence almost no traffic), but will fill up once development occurs. That's called "learning from the mistakes in Europe and North America"

Most people don't know what Doha is in Arabic because Qatar and Doha are obviously not as well known as Rome and Italy.

The highways are really nice, but Qatar is a fantastically wealthy country, I'd expect nothing less.

Obviously. Emirates of the UAE, Qatar and Bahrain are considered to be the Emirates south of Persian Gulf. And Bahrain and Qatar were supposed to be united with Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Sharjah, Fujayra, Ajman and Ra's ol-Khayma to create the UAE but were later discluded.
