Oman set to select consultant for Muscat metro project

Oman’s Ministry of Transport, Communications and Information Technology (MTCIT) will open bids for the consultancy contract for Muscat metro project on February 1, Oman Daily Observer reported.

The selected consultant will help the ministry deliver key decisions and advisory services related to the project.

The award will be finalised through negotiations or a direct award, the report said.

Phase one of the ministry’s procurement strategy for the Muscat metro project is officially underway with the launch of the tendering process, with a primary focus on the pre-feasibility stage.

Separately, the ministry has commissioned a study to assess the socioeconomic benefits of the project for the Muscat governorate and wider economy.

The metro will run from Seeb to Ruwi, passing through several areas of the capital, Times of Oman reported, citing a ministry of housing and urban planning official.
