by Luqman Cloete

THE Neckartal Dam is ready to collect water, even though it is only set for completion in mid-July this year.

Fabrizio Lazzarin, project manager of Salini Impregilo SpA, the Italian builder awarded the N$2,8 billion contract to build the dam near Keetmanshoop, said this in a briefing to the permanent secretaries of the ministries of finance and agriculture as well as the acting permanent secretary of the National Planning Commission (NPC), who were visiting the building site yesterday.

“There is no risk to construction,” he told the officials.
