Work will start soon on a $28.3 million project to renovate the Tadji Military Base and Iraqi Armed Forces recruiting stations. The project is funded through the Project Management Office (PMO) of the US-backed Coalition Provisional Authority.
The PMO manages the $18.4 billion appropriated by the US Congress to support the reconstruction of Iraqi infrastructure. The Tadji project includes building renovation; renovation and construction of medical facilities; repair a wastewater treatment plant, and install sewage distribution lines. The recruiting stations are at Al-Hillah, Kirkuk and Baqcuba.
The work is expected to be complete by approximately early June 2004. The prime contractor, US-based Parsons Infrastructure & Technology Group, intends to involve Iraqi contractors, suppliers and labor, according to a press release. — (menareport.com)
