The construction of the 14.7km long central tunnel section with related access and work shafts is part of Ashghal’s 10 billion QAR key program to provide a long-term wastewater treatment solution and vital drainage infrastructure for the southern parts of Doha. The main trunk sewer divided in three construction sections will be approximately 45km long, with internal diameters ranging from 3 to 4.5 meters, and depths ranging from 20 to 55 meters. The project will start in Q3 of 2015, and is expected to be completed in Q4 of 2019.
