Oman based Galfar Engineering & Contracting Company has won a major road project contract worth $222 million from the Ministry of Transport and Communications.

The scope of work includes the addition of two lanes for the dualisation of Rusail- Nizwa road project in the sultanate. Currently, the ministry is working on finalising the contractual procedures and work on the project is likely to start in the last quarter of this year.

A leading construction group Galfar said, “The mobilisation work will be completed within two months after it gets go-ahead from the ministry. The entire project will be completed within two-and-a-half years, the company stated in a filing to the Muscat Securities Market.”

He added, “This is to inform our shareholders and investors that the Tender Board has awarded Galfar a tender on ‘addition of two lanes (lane 3 and 4) to dualisation of Rusail–Nizwa road from interchange of MEW to the interchange of Al Sharqiya road (part 1)’ vide the letter of the Ministry of Transport and Communications dated May 8.”
