Oman and Bahrain round off the regional appetite for road and bridge spending, with $8 billion of projects in various stages currently ongoing in Oman, and a further $2 billion in Bahrain.
The Gulf region is forging ahead with plans to improve its regional transportation infrastructure, with $121.3 billion worth of road and bridge projects already underway or in the planning phase.
Nearly half of the regional spend is concentrated in the UAE, which has $58 billion worth of road and bridge projects planned or underway, while Saudi Arabia is the next largest spender, pledging $26.9 billion to upgrade the country's transport infrastructure over the next five years.
In Qatar, $17 billion worth of road projects are now in cruise control, as it prepares its expansive transport network ahead of the Football World Cup in 2022, while Kuwait underlines its position as one of the most active markets for road projects in the next two years, with $9 billion of schemes in the pipeline.
