Pacts inked for aviation, transport sectors
MUSCAT Two agreements in the field of aviation and transport, at a cost of 5,74,98,822 rials, were signed by the executing companies and the Ministry of Transport and Communications on Monday.

HE Ahmed Bin Mohammed Al Futaisi, Minister of Transport and Communications, said the first agreement with Hill International Company, worth 4,18,00,000 rials, was related to completion of the consultancy services and the supervision works for Muscat International Airport and Salalah Airport project. The company would replace the consultant whose term has expired.

He said Hill International Company would be in charge of supervising and revising the designs, contracts and ensuring integration among contractors with effect from January 1. He added that the company had already received its assignment from the outgoing contractor with effect from December 1 and the Omani staff had been already transferred to it. He expected the project to be completed as planned by the end of 2014.

As for the second agreement, worth 1,56,98,822 rials, with Al Sarooj Constructions Company, Futaisi said it was related to the construction of 11.480 km-long asphalt road in the Wilayat of Madha in the Governorate of Musandam. The road would enhance social and trade activity in the mountainous areas.

New Jersey-based Hill International Company has 3,500 employees and 100 offices at different countries of the world. The company supervises projects, such as airports of Bahrain, Abu Dhabi and in the USA.

The agreements’ signing ceremony was attended by HE Salim Bin Mohammed Al Nuaimi, Undersecretary at the Ministry of Transport and Communications for Transport, and Eng. Salim Bin Nasser Al Oufi, Chairman at the Public Authority for Civil Aviation.
