Multan Road sewerage project 80pc complete

Daily Times, 17 February, 2014


LAHORE: The Water and Sanitation Agency (WASA) has completed almost 80 percent construction of the Multan Road sewerage, one of the largest mega schemes in the city, and it would be completed by June this year.


The estimated cost of the 15 kilometre long project is Rs 1726 million and PC-I of the project has been approved by the Punjab government. The project will benefit not only the Multan Road but also all government and private housing societies including Mansoorah, Awan Town, Tech Society, Alfa Society, Canal View Society, Canal Burg Colony, Ahmad Town, Thokar Niaz Baig, Judicial Colony, Ali Town, Hajvery Town, Azam Garden, West Wood Colony, Niaz Baig village, PCSIR Colony-I, Hanjarwal, Ittefaq Town and other colonies.


The project was to complete before the construction of the Multan Road two years ago but due to some reasons the government allowed NLC, the contractor of the Multan Road project, to complete the road without the sewerage and the project was given to WASA. A portion of the project worth Rs 526 million out of the total estimated cost has been already completed by the NLC and the rest of the project worth Rs 1200 million would be completed by WASA.


WASA Deputy Managing Director Engineering Aftab Ahmad Dhilloon told APP that construction continued in full swing and it would be completed before the next monsoon season. He said that after completion, it would be sufficient for the next 50 to 60 years. He added that WASA was using most modern technology for laying sewer lines and the tunnel boring system was being used for the purpose. He said that with the new technique, pipelines were being laid without digging or damaging the road as well as other properties. The WASA official said after completion, the sewerage would be the most efficient system in the provincial capital and it would also help dispose of water during monsoon seasons.
