Muscat-Dubai Highway to be Upgraded

Muscat: Alarmed by the increasing fatalities on the highway linking Muscat with Dubai in the Batinah region, the Ministry of Transport and Communications in Oman has planned to turn the main link road into an international-class carriageway.

According to a report in the government-owned daily Oman Observer, the government is preparing to select an experienced consultant to undertake detailed design work on the project.

The Ministry, report says, plans to construct a total of 24 grade-separated junctions at key points along the highway. These junctions will replace existing open intersections that have been the focus of horrific road mishaps that occur from time to time along the highway.

The grade-separated junctions will come up at 24 locations along a 250-kilometre stretch extending from Bait al Barakah roundabout to Khatmat Malaha roundabout.
