The Ministry of Transport and Communications on Monday floated four tenders seeking bids from contracting companies to design and build internal roads and roundabouts in three governorates — Al Sharqiyah, Al Dhabirah and Al Batinah.
According to the Ministry of Transport and Communications, the first tender is for building Al Flaj internal road in Al Mudaybi wilayat (Al Sharqiyah), the second one is for remaining works for the design and construction of Muqniyat-Miskin roads in Ibri (Al Dhahirah), design and construction of roundabout at Al Misafah junction (South Batinah) and design and construction of new track road in Dima Wa-Taiyyin A'Ryhani village (North Sharqiyah).
This is part of a series of new roads aimed at improving access to interior regions, and its better connectivity with expressways.
According to a report last year, the Ministry of Transport and Communications has been conducting studies to build major new roads as well as dualisation work of existing roads with a total length of over 1,300 kilometers in different parts of the country.
Further, studies for building major road projects with a total length of over 400ks have been completed by the end of June 2013.
