Jeddah Municipality had approved a plan to build nine sewage tunnels
Jeddah, 29th March 2001

   Makkah Governor Prince Abdul Majeed said yesterday that the Jeddah Municipality had approved a plan to build nine tunnels in different parts of the city to complement the sewage network.

He said the municipality had been given the largest budget it received for many years. “It has been a long time since Jeddah Municipality had received such a huge budget,” said the governor, while talking to reporters after a tour of the Institute of Business Administration (IBA) in Jeddah.

He said many construction projects would be started soon to improve the infrastructure of the city. “The drainage system is a ‘volcano’ that Jeddah is sleeping on. We know it will collapse any time,” said Prince Abdul Majeed.

The governor said Jeddah Holding Company had started working on these projects after gaining permission from the Ministry of Finance.

He said the first tunnel would be built at the intersection of Waly Al-Ahad Street and Sitteen Street. This tunnel will be built by Jeddah Services Company to clear sewage water, he said.

As for rainwater drainage system, the governor said that it would be constructed by the government. “We are working on this now,” said Prince Abdul Majeed.

During his visit to IBA, Prince Abdul Majeed met with the staff and students of the institute who were hoping to turn IBA into a private college.

After touring the institute Prince Abdul Majeed viewed a film on IBA’s facilities. The IBA is a private institute working under the supervision of King Abdul Aziz University, and certified by the General Organization of Technical Education and Vocational Training.

The institute includes four departments — Management Information Systems, Finance & Accounting, Office Management, and Marketing Management.

All courses are taught in English. IBA requires its 120 students to take 300 hours of English language courses.  The courses cost SR12,000 per semester, and it takes five semesters to graduate and gain an IBA diploma, certified by the Consortium for International Development.
