Eng. Jaafar Al Ajmi, Director General of KOM, stated that this agreement embodies a significant advancement in fostering a conducive business environment at KOM and perfectly aligns with Madayn’s ongoing efforts to attract investments in the ICT sector.

“The agreement complements KOM’s existing initiatives in promoting a healthy and sustainable work environment, while also raising awareness on environmental preservation among the entire KOM community. Through the agreement, we aim at encouraging employees, and students of colleges and institutes within KOM to use public transportation and play a role in minimizing carbon emissions,” Al Ajmi pointed out.

Al Ajmi added that this agreement comes simultaneously with Madayn’s completion of the Ring Road project and the transformation of Knowledge Oasis Muscat into a new appearance.

The project included the construction of roads spanning 7.7 km, an 8 km pedestrian walkway, a 6 km cycling route, a 5 km sewage network, and a 6 km rainwater drainage channel.

The project also involved the installation of 286 solar-powered streetlights and the implementation of an advanced surveillance system, consisting of 51 cameras. Moreover, KOM’s management will soon announce a number of strategic and service projects scheduled for implementation in the second half of the current year, designed to reinforce business efficiency and foster an ideal investment environment in KOM.

On his part, "This new partnership with Madayn involves the addition of a new stop at the Knowledge Oasis Muscat, as part of Route 6. This stop will enhance accessibility to KOM by providing accessible and safe transportation services, while also boosting economic, social, and environmental benefits through promoting the use of public transportation."
