Oman’s minister for transport and communications, HE Dr Ahmed bin Mohammed bin Salim al Futaisi, said these projects will be a great addition to the country’s road network and could potentially reduce accidents.

“The Batinah Expressway is a vital project that could help realise economic visions. The expressway would provide huge investment opportunities to small and medium enterprises. We want more people to benefit from this project,” Al Futaisi added.
