Muscat: The Ministry of Transport, Communications and Information Technology on Thursday opened additional 18 km of Adam-Haima-Thumrait dual carriageway for traffic.
With the opening of this part, 280 km of Adam-Haima-Thumrait dual carriageway have been opened for traffic, out of (317.5) km that constitutes the total length of the dual carriageway project.
The project starts from the Wilayat of Adam in the Governorate of Al Dhakiliyah to the Wilayat of Haima in the Governorate of Al Wusta.
