Dubai Municipality had earlier over the month of August expressed their interest for contractors to bid for a tunnels project construction. The contract of the project was for the bidding companies to provide consultancy on project management for the sewage treatment plants as well as deep tunnels across the emirates of Dubai. The Dubai municipality has rekindled their interest in the project and are seeking to work on the it with companies that had submitted their prequalification forms in the month of August 25th which had been the submission deadline for the firms that were interested.

The project will involve developing assets across the city of Dubai and Hatta. Dubbed as the Deep Tunnels Portfolio by the Dubai Municipality, the scheme will be developed as a public-private partnership (PPP) initiative. The construction schematics involve plans of constructing two sets of two terminal pump stations. The stations will be located at sewerage treatment plants at Warsan and Jebel Ali. A conventional sewage collection system as well as a drainage system will be constructed in Hatta as part of the project. The Dubai municipality also seeks to construct a sewage treatment plant (STP) in the city. The scheme also include recycled water distribution systems that will be connected to the sewage treatment plants.
