Larsen & Toubro (Oman) picked up the Infrastructure Project of the Year at the Construction Week Oman 2015 Awards for its upgrade of roads from Darsait to Al Wadi and Al Kabir in Muscat.

The company triumphed over a submission for Muscat International Airport works by Hill International and the construction of Madinat Nizwa by Bahwan Engineering Co - the latter of which was highly commended by CW's judging panel.

The company's chief executie said that receicing the prize "gives us more responsilibty to deliver more and keep expectations high."

He added: "The job itself was a very tough job because of the utilities and the traffic diversions.

"That has thrown us a lot of challenges and we have minimised the disturbance to the public. You cannot do this 100% because there are very narrow roads that need widening."

He added that he is confident about L&T's prospects for the next 12 months in the Sultanate.

"We have a healthy backlog, good order books and we are looking for more projects."

The Construction Week Oman 2015 Awards took place at the Muscatt Grand Hyatt on 30 March. The awards were sponsored by platinum sponsor Aecom,gold sponsors Famco, Oman Electromechanical Company and Logical Decking, category sponsors CCC, Services & Trade Co and Alemco Zawawi, as well as by aluminium extruder Napco.
