Three new megaprojects to change the face of Oman

Oman’s Ministry of Housing and Urban Planning has disclosed plans to construct three megaprojects in three different governorates: Dhofar, Musandam, and South Al Batinah. These megaprojects were selected from numerous submissions for a development project that can be implemented in one of the governorates. The ministry officials and governors revealed the megaprojects in a meeting held in Muscat.

Here are the details of the three upcoming megaprojects in Oman:

Rathath Boulevard in Dhofar: This project will take four years to complete and is valued at RO40 million ($104 million). It will feature an artificial waterway, a water feature, dining establishments that cater to both local and international cuisine, an educational garden that showcases diverse plant life, suspended pathways, theatres, commercial areas, and a hub for hosting various events. The goal is to create a comprehensive recreational destination that embraces Omani customs and traditions, catering to visitors from both within the country and abroad.
