Easing congestion during the Eid al Adha holidays, a 40km stretch of the Adam-Thumrait dual carriageway will be opened on Thursday, announced the Ministry of Transport and Communications (MoTC). In May, MoTC opened a 140km stretch of the project and a few weeks ago it opened another 41km section.
The remaining three parts of the project are between the wilayats of Haima and Thumrait with a length of 400km. The total length of the first two phases is 317.5km. The third part of the project stretches from the wilayat of Haima to Muqshin with a length of 132.5km. The fourth part is from the wilayat of Muqshin to Dukha area with a length of 135km. The last part which stretches from Dukha to Thumrait is 132.5km.
The Adam-Thumrait dual road project has a total of 717.5km.
