Pipe Transport - The Great Man Made River (GMMR)

Pipe Transport

Pipes are carried on purpose built pipe transporters designed
to support their massive weight ranging between 75 and 86 tons.

During the project progress around 300 Truck Trailers were utilized to carry these huge concrete pipes day and night.

Haul Roads

The weight of the pipe transported is such that they can not be carried on the public road system.

Roads specially constructed to carry them are called haul roads.
These form a massive network to distribute pipe from the two pipe plants
to the pipeline. 3,715 Km of haul roads are regularly maintained. There are further 500 Km estimated haul roads for Phase III

Phase I Total Length 1,600 Km

Phase II Total Length 2,155 Km
