The Special Economic Zone Authority for Duqm (SEZAD) in a statement assured that the all major infrastructure projects in the region were not affected by the tropical system Hikka that was accompanied by heavy rains on Tuesday.
The Duqm city received around 116 mm of rainfall as a result of the tropical system, SEZAD said in a statement.
Dr Ismail bin Ahmed al Balushi, acting CEO, SEZAD, said that the Port of Duqm, Duqm Dry Dock, Duqm Airport and other tourism and infrastructure projects, including major roads, were not affected due to heavy rains and strong winds.
“The dams were able to stop the rainwater from the mountains and wadis, which were released back to the sea through the well-equipped drainage channels.”
The work was back to normal on Wednesday with workers having resumed their duty work in the morning.
Balushi said the service road leading to the Chinese Industrial Corridor and the Karwa project were affected by heavy rains on Tuesday.
A meeting was held with the contractor on Wednesday to speed up the repair work.
