Continuing processes of population growth, improvement of the standard of living and the development of the city, necessitate expanding the water supply network by strengthening the main transport pipeline in existing roads and by laying new lines in new neighborhoods and new main roads.
The works in 2020 are derived from the master plan for the supply of water to Jerusalem and from road construction projects of the Roads Division, the Moriah Company and the Ministry of Construction and Housing.
The integration of laying water lines with road construction works saves excavation costs, opening and repairing of asphalt and reduces the disruption to traffic when laying the water lines. For these reasons, the network expansion work is sometimes carried out by preceding investments.
