The National Water Company plans new projects worth SR4 billion ($1.07bn) in Jeddah’s historical regions, northern and southern parts.
The projects include replacement with high-pressure pipes that can pump larger quantities of water, construction of main pipeline networks and setting up of pumping stations.
The company will also replace sewage pipelines in the historical region, covering about 3,750 hectares between Tahlia Street on the north, Sitteen Street on the east, Andalus Street on the west and Mahjar Street on the south. The company said it will invite tenders for the project and will be implemented in 48 months.

The company also intends to implement an environmental service project in North Jeddah at a cost of SR1.23 billion ($330m).
