Oman-based Galfar Engineering and Contracting Company has been awarded a contract worth $68m (OMR26.24m) for road works at Al Batinah Expressway project in the sultanate.  

The contract was awarded by the Ministry of Transport and Communications for works related to traffic opening at the Expressway as part of package three of the project, according to a disclosure statement posted on MSM website, the Times of Oman reported.

The contract has a completion period of 426 days, which includes 30 days for mobilisation.

The contractor said earlier this week that its net profit for Q1 2017 stood at $15,582 (OMR6,000) against $1,402,597 (OMR540,000) posted for the same period last year.
