Accordingly, JICA will provide US$17.5 million to upgrade the 2.7km-long degrade water drainage system in the heart of city,  aiming to reduce pollution, depression, traffic jams and flooding.
The total capital of the project costs US$20.6 million, including the reciprocal capital of US$3.1 million.
The project is scheduled to be carried out from now until 2020.
