Multifunctional Infrastructure in Yemen

Heavy rains caused flood on a street in the city centre of Sana´a, Yemen. The flood closed several roads and trapped some cars in the flood water in the capital city. However, the road is paved and placed in cut stone, so the regular floods that come in the raining season are routed through the paved road to end up in a recharge zone outside the city centre. Therefore this road has transformed this part of the Yemen capital. Whereas in the past it was swampy and waterlogged, it is now free of that. Property values have shot up considerably.
