The authorities in Oman are setting out plans for a major new highway project to improve connectivity in the country. The tender process is underway for the project management contract for the Batinah Expressway. Oman's Ministry of Transport and Communications is inviting bids from consultancy firms to manage the project, which will be divided into six construction packages. The 265km link will extend the Muscat Expressway to Khatmat Malaha, located in the border between the country and the UAE. Worth US$2.6 billion, this is one of Oman’s largest road projects.
