It will provide real estate statistics and information and supply investors and developers with accurate data which will enable them to take adequate decisions, reported BNA.

Upgrade for pumping stations

Qatar’s Public Works Authority (Ashghal) is on schedule with a project to increase the capacity of four sewage pumping stations by 62 per cent in order to accommodate both current and future sewage flows. The pumping stations are located in vital areas within Doha, namely New Slata, Al Mansoura, Al Messila, and Al Rayyan.

Refurbishment works include the installation of new equipment to improve the pumping stations’ performance and functionality with the upgrade of pumping stations’ control systems. This is in addition to improved odour control systems to prevent bad odours in the surrounding areas.

The project is being implemented by Contracting Services & Trading Company (GEC), and is expected to be completed in Q2, 2021.
