Dewa starts on $46mn, 25km water transmission link
Three-phase project to boost reliability of water supply across Dubai
Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (Dewa) has started work on a 25km water transmission network project across Dubai.
The project will cost $46.3mn to complete and will connect 17 areas of the city with main transmission lines to increase flow, ensure reliable supply, and raise network pressure to meet current and future demands.
Dewa's CEO HE Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer said the project consisted of three parts, with the first being a 1200mm-diameter line from Al Aweer through Meydan Road, Nad Al Sheba, Business Bay and Al Khail Road to Al Quoz station.
The second will see a 600mm transmission pipeline from Al Khail Road along Al Khamila Street to Sheikh Zayed Road, and the third will see a 900mm-diamemter line from Sheikh Zayed Road passing through Dubai Pearl and Al Sufouh Road to Palm Jumeirah.
"Work on extending and launching the main water transmission network is expected to be completed by the end of 2015,” said Al Tayer.
