Earlier this month MEED reported that technical bids for package seven, eight and nine were submitted.

In December 2014, MEED also reported that in August, India’s Nagarjuna Construction Company was awarded a $371.3m contract to build the retendered second package of the Batinah Expressway scheme.

While in 2013, another Indian firm Simplex Infrastructures won a $318m deal for package three, as well as India’s Larsen & Toubro (L&T), which was awarded a $353m contract for package four.

The new 265-kilometre-long Batinah Expressway, Oman’s biggest road scheme, will create the first dual four-lane motorway in the sultanate and will link Muscat to the new Sohar port and the UAE border.
