OMAN, Nov 22 (FAM) – Oman is re-starting its ‘rail engine’ and issuing new rail tenders as part of their national rail project; linking all three major ports in the country: Salalah, Sohar and Duqm.

The last 18 months have witnessed a slowdown in rail projects across the GCC (Gulf Cooperation Council), partly due to oil price and national project reforms. It hasn’t particularly been a flourishing period for rail projects, but this latest news signifies the upturn in the regional market as we step into 2017.
