A 70km tunnel is being built in Dubai!
Next year, construction will begin on a brand new tunnel stretching 70 kilometers underground from Deira to Bur Dubai.
The tunnel will be 90 meters below the ground, and will be supported by roughly 140km link sewers and key pumping stations - And do you know what that means? No more sewerage trucks!
A part of the Dubai Strategic Sewerage Project, in 5 years time the completed plan will have 100 pump stations across the city, so transfer vehicles will not be necessary.
So, all in all, we're getting a new tunnel to ease traffic, and getting rid of sewerage trucks! Win, win!
