Development drive in Oman hits top gear

Times of Oman - 25/07/2006MUSCAT

Sheikh Abdullah bin Salim bin A'mer Al Rowas, minister of regional municipalities, environment and water resources, yesterday signed 11 agreements worth around RO11.5 million for developmental works in various parts of the Sultanate.

The signing of the agreements is in line with the 36th Renaissance Day anniversary celebrations. The agreements signed with different contracting companies include six for upgradation and building of new interior roads, two for souqs, and one each for construction of sewerage network and sewage treatment plant (STP) in Sur; a pedestrian suspended bridge; and laying of underground cables.

The road projects have been commissioned in different wilayats in the regions of Batinah, Dakhiliyah, Sharqiyah and Dahirah and will mostly be single carriageways.

A 100-m-long suspended pedestrian bridge will be built on the Khoor Al Batah valley near Sur to connect nearby villages and it will be completed in 18 months.

The souqs will come up in Masirah Island and Duqm.

According to Abdul Hakeem Al Zadjali, director-general of technical affairs at the Ministry of Regional Municipalities, Environment and Water Resources, all these projects are aimed at improving the well-being of the people of the Sultanate.

For example, the development of the entrance of Mahout will ease the traffic congestion and enable smooth movement of vehicles.

Similarly, the construction of the sewage treatment plant and sewage network in Sur will improve the quality of life and civic amenities in that town.

All these projects are part of the community service initiatives and add to the building of a modern Oman, which is the main aim of His Majesty Sultan Qaboos bin Said, the officials of the ministry said.

These projects will in turn will improve the social structure, and increase the economic activity in the regions.

The upgradation and building of new asphalted roads in the different wilayats are expected to contribute to the growth of tourism because many of these roads are part of the tourism locations.
