The rehabilitation project will take place in separate locations, starting from the Wilayat of Barka to Khatmat Milaha in the Wilayat of Shinas.

A replacement of asphalt layers with a total length of 73 km along the Al Batinah Highway, repairing damaged iron barriers, installing and replacing guiding regulations, and ground paint works are included in the project.
