    Al Buraimi Governorate – Sultanate of Oman

The primary objective of the project is to dualize the existing road from the industrial area of Buraimi to Mahdah, in Buarimi Governorate, ensuring an any weather connection between the two centres and reducing the number of accidents. The road starts from Al Buraimi Hospital Junction and ends near Mahdah Town. The alignment generally follows the existing road except at some places where the horizontal alignment was modified.

Critical issue

  • Frequent fatal accidents
  • Flooding due to the presence of many wadis; for a long trunk, the existing road goes across wadi beds, in correspondence of the connection area between the wadi Al Fath, with wadi Qumayra, wadi al Uqaybah and wadi Shukayyah
  • The wadi are crossed only by Irish crossings
  • Mahdah during flooding events becomes totally inaccessible
