Engineering and construction firm Larsen & Toubro (L&T) has announced that it has won a US$25mn contract for the construction of a road between Bidbid and Sur in northeast Oman

The scope involves widening of the existing 76km two-lane road into three-lane dual carriageway, construction of 10-arch type interchanges, five two-cell vehicular underpasses, seven single-cell pedestrian underpasses and 15km of linked and service roads along the stretch, the Indian company said in a statement.

The project is scheduled to be completed in 38 months, it added.

S.N. Subrahmanyan, senior executive V-P of Infrastructure and Construction at L&T, said, ?This order augers well for L&T?s business expansion plans in the infrastructure space in the GCC markets.

?L&T has been making significant strides in the transportation infrastructure sector both in the international and domestic markets through our well-established capabilities in design, engineering and project execution with top class quality and safety standards.?
