Trucks banned from us­ing cer­tain routes in Dho­far, says MoTC

Muscat Daily - - NATION -

Truck driv­ers have been banned from us­ing roads lead­ing to the western parts of Dho­far as well as the Sar­feet bor­der exit due to poor vis­i­bil­ity, ac­cord­ing to a state­ment is­sued by the Min­istry of Trans­port and Com­mu­ni­ca­tions (MoTC).

In a state­ment, the min­istry said that dense fog af­fects move­ment of ve­hi­cles in the Dho­far gov­er­norate par­tic­u­larly dur­ing the kha­reef sea­son.

In co­op­er­a­tion with the ROP, the new rule is in force since Mon­day and will stay un­til the end of the sea­son.

MoTC has said that fuel tankers, petroleum prod­uct trucks and food sup­ply trucks (3- 7 tonnes) are ex­empted from this new rule.

Trucks head­ing to Ye­men are al­lowed to take the Al Mazy­ouna trans­port bor­der exit road in­stead, it said.
