Two of the region’s largest construction companies, Consolidated Contractors Co (CCC) and Galfar Engineering and Contracting Company, are in the running for a contract to build an Omani road project.

They are among eight companies bidding to work on the Izki-Nizwa road dualisation project in the Governorate of Al Dakhiliyah.

According to Oman’s Tender Board website, Consolidated Contractors Co has submitted a $119.4mn (OMR 45.94mn), while Galfar Engineering and Contracting Company has priced the job at $100.3mn (OMR 38.62mn).

However, both companies were undercut by Nagarjuna Construction Company International, which submitted the lowest bid at $88mn (OMR 33.88mn).

Other bids include Hasan Bin Juma Bin Backer Trading and Contracting at $101.6mn (OMR 39.11mn), Oman Emirates Contracting Company at $136.6mn (OMR 52.57mn), Oman Shapoorji Construction Company at $122.2mn (OMR 47.04mn), Yuksal Construction at $95.4mn (OMR 36.72mn) and Al Shanfari Trading Co at $95.6mn (OMR 36.8mn).

The tender for the dualisation of the Izki-Nizwa road project was floated in October last year by Oman’s Ministry of Transport and Communication.
