Excavation works for the main trunk sewer, a part of the Doha South Sewage Infrastructure Project, have started.
The project comprises the construction of a 16km main trunk sewer, divided into three segments, eastern, northern and western, besides the construction of 11 shafts for excavating the main tunnel. The main trunk sewer will convey the sewage that flows through pumping stations to the existing Doha south treatment works.
The Doha South Sewage Infrastructure Project is designed to serve areas in the south of Doha.
The project can be linked to future infrastructure projects, and when completed, it will enable the decommissioning of more than 20 old pumping stations.
The project will link a number of areas in the south of Doha to the sewage network. As a result, it will reduce the environmental impacts through the full control of odours in sewage treatment works and conveying system, and reduce other environmental problems arising from sewage overflow due to excess hydraulic pressure on the existing drainage network, where sewage flows exceed its capacity.
The project is expected to be completed by the first quarter of 2019. The Doha South Sewage Infrastructure Project is the first project in the region to implement the CEEQUAL an international evidence-based sustainability assessment, rating and awards scheme for civil engineering, infrastructure, landscaping and works in public spaces.
The Joint Venture “Bouygues Travaux Publics” and “UCC” is the project contractor and “CH2M” is the Project Management Consultant.
