WORKS are progressing to complete pipe replacements ahead of schedule, said TODA Corporation, which is carrying out the replacement of aged pipelines and rehabilitation in the water supply system in Yangon.
Works are underway day in, day out with the full utilisation of manpower in order to finish earlier than the schedule, said Project Manager Fujihito Hakozaki, adding that it is required to cut off water supply before installing and replacing pipelines.
The Yangon City Development Committee began pipeline replacement and rehabilitation works along Kaba Aye Pagoda Road on Thursday with the help of Japanese Government’s assistance, slating for completion coming Monday.
So far rehabilitation work has been completed by 70 per cent but concrete used for the durability of pipeline installments need to be dried up before the resumption of water supply, said the project manager.
The installment of new pipelines and the rehabilitation in the water supply system are being carried out at nine places with a manpower of 200 people. Water supply is expected to resume this Sunday morning, one day ahead of the originally expected completion date.
