Mwasalat sees major lift under 25-year plan

MUSCAT, September 18, 2016

Mwasalat, Oman’s state-run transport company, aims to become a world-class operator under a 25-year master plan drawn up by Spanish transport engineering specialist Ineco, said a top official.

“We really appreciate the involvement, flexibility and know-how of the Ineco’s team working on this project,” Ahmed Ali al Balushi, CEO of Mwasalat was quoted as saying in the Oman Observer report.

“Ineco has successfully demonstrated in the past months that they are a team of highly qualified professionals that can bring international best practice tailored to our needs and context,” he added.

The master-plan outlines a plan of action for the roll out of a public transport network initially across the Muscat region.

The plan also includes the introduction of public transport bus services in major urban centres like Sohar and Salalah, followed by the establishment of interurban transport links between these cities, according to the report.

It also outlines a vision for the development of bus stations, workshops, parking areas and so on, as part of a revamp of Mwasalat’s support infrastructure.

“The modernisation of the company has not been limited only to urban transport in Muscat, Mwasalat intercity and international services were also improved as part of this renovation process with brand-new fleet with the highest levels of quality and safety,” Al Balushi said.
