Gujarat Resilient Cities: Ahmedabad forms microtunnelling committee

A committee has been formed to examine the microtunnelling for drainage line rehabilitation under the Rs 3,000 crore World Bank-funded Gujarat Resilient Cities project.

The Ahmedabad Municipal Corporation (AMC) has formed a new Standing Committee that will examine microtunnelling works for drainage line rehabilitation projects in order to strengthen existing sewage treatment plants in the city.

A recent World Bank note mentioned that the project will widely cover areas of sewage treatment plants (STPs), tertiary treatment plants (TTPs), rehabilitation of existing sewer lines and microtunneling sewer works, stormwater drainage improvements, canal development and lake development and conservation projects among others.

AMC told the media that the project’s primary focus is to strengthen the financial and investment planning systems, municipal revenue base, expanding access to market finance focusing on land-based financing and private sector investments. The project's key objective is to develop resilient and sustainable urban service delivery and financial systems in Ahmedabad.

Apart from strengthening wastewater management systems, the World Bank project will involve strengthening AMC's financial systems and performance.
