Muscat expressway expansion, Oman's widest road ahead

Muscat expressway expansion, Omans widest road ahead

Muscat: Muscat is set to have an expressway expansion as the Chairman of Muscat Municipality, Ahmed bin Mohammed Al Humaidi states “a significant milestone” after a tender was floated for the said project on Wednesday.

The Muscat Expressway expansion project represents a significant leap forward in the nation's infrastructure development. Expressing his confidence in the project's significance, Al Humaidi highlighted its pivotal role in realizing the objectives outlined in Oman Vision 2040.

"The Muscat Expressway expansion project signifies a pivotal advancement in bolstering connectivity across the capital's regions. It aims to amplify the capacity to accommodate the burgeoning demands of the transportation sector, aligning closely with the nation's trajectory of urban and economic development," said Al Humaidi.

The project holds the promise of fostering smoother traffic flow for both individuals and goods transport. By furnishing the requisite infrastructure for a developmental endeavour, it is poised to propel the nation towards its future aspirations.

The expansion encompasses the addition of three lanes in each direction, effectively widening the road to accommodate twelve lanes, thereby making it the Sultanate's widest road. Additionally, the project entails enhancing the efficiency of several multi-level intersections. This includes augmenting acceleration and deceleration lanes linked with the expressway, expanding existing bridges and implementing essential drainage channels and slope protections.

Further, it also covers floor paving, service diversion works, installation of concrete barriers and the adoption of an environmentally friendly LED lighting system to replace the current lighting infrastructure.

The inauguration of the Muscat Expressway during the country's 40th National Day celebrations in 2010 marked a crucial milestone. Catalyzing connectivity between residential and commercial hubs within the capital, the expressway significantly mitigated traffic congestion along Sultan Qaboos Street.
