Muscat: The Ministry of Transport on Thursday opened (22) additional kilometres of the Adam-Haima-Thumrait dual carriageway for traffic.
With the opening of this part of the road, (262) km of the Adam -Haima-Thumrait dual carriageway project have been opened for traffic, out of (317.5) km that constitutes the overall length of the road, which starts from the Wilayat of Adam in the Governorate of Al Dhakiliyah to the Wilayat of Haima in the Governorate of Al Wusta.
This road project is the longest dual carriageway in the Sultanate. It represents an important asset to the economic activities in serving Duqm Economic Zone and the oil fields in the desert areas. This road will also contribute to the revitalisation of the economic, tourism and social activities in the areas along the road path and in the Governorate of Dhofar, especially Khareef season.
It is worth nothing that the Ministry of Transport, through the Tender Board, has recently awarded the remaining 400 km (three parts of the road), starting from the Wilayat of Haima in the Governorate of Al Wusta to the Wilayat of Thumrait in the Governorate of Dhofar. –ONA
