MUSCAT: The Ministry of Transport, Communications and Information Technology has said that it is pressing ahead with plans set for the development of the Port of Khasab.


The plans build on tenders launched earlier to manage, operate and develop Khasab Port, including aspects related to supplying vessels with fuel, operating piers, connecting the port with global terminals and granting lands for investment in the logistics and light industries’ fields, according to a statement issued by the Ministry on Wednesday.


The statement indicated that, with a view to linking the Wilayat of Khasab with the Wilayat of Dibba and, to facilitate the movement of citizens and residents within the Governorate of Musandam, the ministry announced a consultative tender to select a route for the Dibba-Lima-Khasab carriageway and to prepare tender documents for project implementation.


In a bid to enhance the system of transport in the Governorate of Musandam and, to facilitate the movement of members of the public, the Ministry will allow individuals to operate their vehicles in private transport services through the use of smart apps.


In the field of air transport, the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) will coordinate with the departments concerned to utilise Khasab Airport for civil-cum-military services after the completion of a study to develop the airport and enrich tourism and economic activities in the Governorate.


The CAA has endorsed regulatory terms and conditions for water aerodromes, inviting bids by interested investors to establish an amphibious aircraft company to operate in different sites in the Sultanate, among them Khasab and Dibba in Musandam Governorate.
