$1bn Musandam road project attracts 31 firms

Oman's Tender Board has said global construction giants are among the 31 companies that have submitted their credentials seeking prequalification to participate in a tender for a contract to build a 65km section of one of the sultanate's most expensive road projects, Times of Oman has reported. The new Diba-Lima-Khasab, expected to cost an estimated $1bn, is an arterial carriageway featuring a series of massive road and wadi bridges, as well as some of Oman's longest tunnels across the strategically important Musandam governorate in the far north of the country.
