Recently, the Department of Municipalities and Transport prioritised this project
The project included development for transit tunnels through the use of a ground water drying system. Hence, this system works to withdraw water from the drying wells and re-pumps it into collection basins in the valleys. Then, they use the re-pumped water in the irrigation or gardens and agriculture. This project provides a sustainable source of irrigation water at an average of 3,500 cubic metres per day.
Moreover, the project contributes mainly to raising efficiency of the traffic safety system inside tunnels. Through the provision of a reduction system for collected surface water in order to reduce traffic accidents.
