MHUP signs pact with STRABAG Oman for Sultan Haitham City
Muscat: The Ministry of Housing and Urban Planning (MHUP) today signed an agreement to implement the preliminary tasks for the first phase in Sultan Haitham City with the Strabag Oman LLC, related to preparing the road infrastructure, preparing the valley stream, and developing the area adjoining the central park at a cost exceeding RO 7 million.
The infrastructure preparation work for the first phase will begin on December 28, 2023 and will continue for 3 months with an area of more than 6 million square metres. It also includes the valley stream and the central park with an area of 1.6 million square metres, and the main paths with a total of 35 km. This agreement comes within a series of agreements with partners to carry out basic and construction works.

Last June, 21 development and partnership agreements were signed for the first phase with a number of government institutions and the private sector, in areas of partnership. Government cooperation, real estate development, finance, services and infrastructure, and the value of these agreements exceeded RO 1 billion.
The Ministry is working with its partners to sign a number of agreements in this aspect during the coming period, in preparation for implementing the construction works for main roads, infrastructure, service buildings, the central park and residential neighborhoods, including water, sanitation, electricity, broadband, roads and green spaces services, according to the plan.
The vision of Sultan Haitham City is to establish a new model for building sustainable cities that keep pace with the aspirations of modern life for young people, emphasizing the adoption of an innovative concept in construction, anticipating future methods, and harnessing global, regional and local expertise and in-depth knowledge in this field to develop a modern icon that emulates the cultural heritage and elevates the lifestyle in the Sultanate of Oman.
It is noteworthy that Sultan Haitham City is based on international standards, including “flexibility”, where the infrastructure designs have engineering flexibility that takes into account the required adaptation to the needs of future population growth, and taking into account the cost of maintenance, in addition to “effectiveness” by determining the standards of the road network and distributing them in a practical way that enables the facilities to operate fully effectively. The most prominent of which is an “easy-to-access” city by distributing the road network, community facilities, and services within close distances that take into account the possibility of accessing the largest possible number of facilities.
