[OM] Oman | road infrastructure

Perhaps time for a thread about Omani Highways, a neighbor of UAE.

Oman has one expressway grade highway running along thr Batimah Coast of the Gulf of Oman. The speed limit is generally 120km/h but it is littered with roundabouts (featured on the weird roundabouts thread). In the Muscat area, the highway is known as Sultan Qaboos Street, and is the trunk road leading into the city.

Other roads are two lane highways in very good condition. There is ample desert scenery. The road between Diba and Al Khasab is gravel, despite what some maps may say.

Nice, the highways look clean and the scenery is great!! Having roundabouts on an expressway is indeed a bit pointless.

Well I will have a second thought, the sign Good Bye is really creepy.

Last week (December the 26th), I have made a trip to the Musadam enclave from the UAE to Oman. Here are some picures from the UAE/Oman border to Kasabh.
