Aqueduct bridge

The aqueduct was constructed to transport water from the natural springs found several kilometres up Wadi Ghwayr from its junction with Wadi Faynan.

It was cut into the side of the wadi and then ran across a 12m long arched bridge over the Wadi Ushayqar to the reservoir. The black plastic water pipes used to supply the fields growing tomatoes today follow precisely the same course.
