Extra care must always be taken while driving on the long and open stretch of road that currently connects Muscat and Salalah. But motorists taking the route are now advised to take extreme caution by the Royal Oman Police (ROP) after it was brought to attention that there was decreased visibility in certain sections of the road.
The affected section — where sand is reportedly blowing across the tarmac — lies between Qatbait and Adam.
In a statement online, ROP said: “For those heading and coming from Dhofar, there is moving sand due to active winds from Qatbait to Adam road, which leads to low-visibility. Pay attention.”
