Oman's Seeb wastewater project 50% completed
Wastewater project near Muscat International Airport on track
Half of the Seeb Wastewater Project, which aims to serve 7,700 houses in the Wilayat of Seeb, has now been completed, the Oman Daily Observer has reported.
Under construction by Galfar Engineering and Contracting SAOG, the development is progressing as planned according to project director Philip Wayne, although the company has had to overcome issues with existing infrastructure and housing.
Wayne has cited random planning of houses and a lack of spacious lanes for installation of main pipes as problems to progress, although the firm is finding solutions to keep the project on track.
“Most wastewater main lines are installed at internal roads, open areas or wadis, and we have tried our best to install them at the roadside and not in the middle of roads for easy access,” he said.
According to the Oman Daily Observer, roads will be temporarily restored pending a full restoration on completion of works, although this may take time and may also result in a difference in levelling, especially where technical issues relating to design have been found.
