According to the source, the Rs 338 crore World Bank assisted project took off in November 2014 after a five month delay because the water board was keen on having the Chief Minister inaugurate the works.
A 24 month timeline has been set for the project, which will elapse this month. While only 200 mtr of mainline work remains, the restoration work will take at least two months more.
The water board is laying a new pipeline totalling 380 km to provide piped water supply from Godavari to Malkajgiri and the surrounding areas. Close to 360 km of the pipeline laying work has been completed. The remaining work mainly involves laying of smaller pipelines connecting houses to the mainline.
