Oman invites bids for 500km railway project

Oman has invited two separate bids for the project management and design work for its 500km rail project, which is part of the GCC’s $20bn 1,900km long network.

Three separate construction tenders for the Oman project will also be invited this year, with tenders being awarded in 2012.

The project will build freight, slow passenger and express passenger railway lines, connecting all of the ports, airports and free zones in the country.

Every GCC state member will build their own railway lines for the common regional link, which is scheduled for completion in 2017.
