A del­e­ga­tion led by H E Eng Said bin Hamoud al Ma’awali, Min­is­ter of Trans­port, Com­mu­ni­ca­tions and In­for­ma­tion Tech­nol­ogy on Sun­day vis­ited the sec­ond phase of Shar­qiyah Ex­press­way project and the pro­posed port site for Sur In­dus­trial City.

H E Ma'awali was ac­com­pa­nied by H E Eng Saleem bin Mo­hammed al Nuaimi, un­der­sec­re­tary for trans­port at the Min­istry of Trans­port, Com­mu­ni­ca­tions and In­for­ma­tion Tech­nol­ogy and a num­ber of spe­cial­ists.

The min­is­ter in­spected the re­main­ing 40km part of Shar­qiyah Ex­press­way project be­tween Wilayat of Al Kamil wa Al Wafi and Sur. He was briefed by those in-charge of the project about the work progress, ac­tion plan, the rea­sons for con­struc­tion de­lay, and time-frame of the project. H E Ma'awali di­rected to speed up the work on re­main­ing part of the ex­press­way project and open it soon for traf­fic.

Ear­lier this year, the min­istry opened 206km part of the 246km-long Shar­qiyah Ex­press­way project. The project in­cludes two un­der­passes, bridges, fly­overs, light­ing poles, and all the re­quired traf­fic safety com­po­nents.

Shar­qiyah Ex­press­way is a ma­jor na­tional road project link­ing Mus­cat Gov­er­norate with the gov­er­norates of Al-Shar­qiyah North and South, pass­ing through Al Dakhiliyah Gov­er­norate. The project has been con­structed due to the grow­ing traf­fic on the old sin­gle road.

The min­is­ter and ac­com­pa­nied del­e­ga­tion also vis­ited Sur In­dus­trial City to in­spect the lo­ca­tion of the pro­posed port project in the city. H E Ma'awali was briefed by spe­cial­ists from the Public Es­tab­lish­ment for In­dus­trial Es­tates (Ma­dayn) on the lo­ca­tion and com­po­nents of the pro­posed port and its as­so­ci­ated ser­vices. The min­is­ter was ac­com­pa­nied by Hi­lal bin Ha­mad al Has­sani, CEO of Ma­dayn.
