Muscat Street in Singapore has finally completed its redevelopment, bringing with it a new look and a cultural import of Oman. Expected to bring in more visitors to the area, the yearlong revitalization and redevelopment of the street has brought ornate carvings and mosaic artwork.

Singapore now has a slice of Oman right in the heart of the city, as the new Muscat Street was unveiled yesterday after being redeveloped to reflect the origin of its name.

Two 8m-high granite arches with ornate Omani carvings now frame the street in Kampong Glam, while granite murals and mosaic artwork line its sides. The street's face-lift, which began in October last year and was completed in July, was a joint initiative between Singapore and the Sultanate of Oman.

Minister for Foreign Affairs and Law K. Shanmugam officiated at the launch of the redeveloped street on Thursday, together with the Secretary-General of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Oman, Mr Sayyid Badr Hamad Al-Busaidi.
