Muscat - Oman

The road improvements in Muscat included the construction of two bridges over two tidal lagoons that were created as a result of the floods that hit the Qurum to Sarooj beach road in June 2007. The construction work focused on protecting the beach and mangroves area as well as avoiding pollution. The tidal flow giving water access to the mangroves is still maintained.

Description of work:
• Construction of two bridges with respective lengths of 30 meters and 150 meters with precast posttensioned
• Implementation of concrete beams and cast-in-situ concrete piles of a diameter of 600 mm and 6,000 meters of length in the lagoon
• Road works including asphalting, road lighting, concrete and steel safety barriers, paving and curbing, road signing and marking
• Rock protection against coastal erosion and sea level rise
