Municipal Council of Muscat (Oman) has urged the Ministry of Transport to introduce a tram system in the capital.
Members of the Municipal Council will meet a consulting company next month to discuss ways to improve public transport in Muscat areas. “We will discuss the tram issue too,” Malik Al Yahmadi, member of Muscat Municipal Council, said after attending the council meeting.
Al Yahmadi said the introduction of trams in Muscat would reduce traffic congestions, provide an alternative mode of public transport as well as reduce pollution, writes Times of Oman.
“With the capital growing by leaps and bounds, Muscat needs a good public transport system. Across the world it has been proven that trams provide high capacity service,” noted Al Yahmadi.
