Muscat: The Ministry of Transport and Communications on Monday floated a tender to select a consultant for preparing tender documents for Diba-Lima-Khasab road and tunnel, which is on a design, build and operate and maintain basis. The road is considered to be one of the strategic linking roads in Oman that will enhance trade and facilitate the flow of traffic between the wilayats of Musandam governorate and contribute to revitalise tourism in the governorate.
The consultancy tender will be opened by July 15, while the documents will be distributed up to July 8.
Estimated to cost in the range of $1 billion, the project is among the most complex roads to be undertaken in the Sultanate. A tender for selecting a project management consultant was floated the government recently. A study for the 65-kilometre-long road, which will be developed on a twenty-year concession with a private operator, has already been completed and a tender for pre-qualification of companies was floated last year.
As many as 31 local and international companies are looking to pre-qualify for the construction work of Diba-Lima-Khasab road project (section 2).
