A feasibility study for a metro rail network in Muscat Governorate will begin and will run for 12 months, after which the routes for the metro will be determined. It is likely that by 2040, the population of Oman will reach about 7.5 million. Based on estimates under the urban development strategy, there will be about one million people in Muscat Governorate. From this point of view, it is important to diversify the means of transportation. This includes a metro network, which will serve as an alternate means of transportation for people.
The structural plan for the metro will include the urban plan of the city, and how that will affect the metro route. Following this study, it will be decided whether the metro will be built above ground or underground. The committee charged with the feasibility study is will be done by Ministry of Transport, Communications and Information Technology (MTCIT). This committee will decide how the metro will be built and also look into its economic feasibility.
