STFA said it is soon to award a key infrastructure package at its fishery harbour project in Taqah, Oman.

The Turkish contractor is building two rubble mound breakwaters, a quay wall, berthing, mooring ,navigational aids, and an internal service road and approach road to connect the harbour to the Salalah – Mirbat road on behalf of the Ministry of Agriculture and Fisheries.

Project manager Ediz Dundar said the asphalt and pavement work for the 1.3km internal road that links the two breakwaters and the approach is being subcontracted, with two firms currently in the running to undertake the work.

"We will be awarding the tenders very shortly," he said. "We expect the work to start in September. Part of the work will involve widening the approach road to 21m."

STFA has reached the mid-point of the project, which is set to be handed over to the client in February 2015.
