Urban roads rehabilitation to be completed in the first half of 2012
The Road Development Agency (RDA) says it is optimistic that the urban road rehabilitation program will be completed in the first half of this year.
The agency, under the ministry of works and supply last year commenced the rehabilitation of urban roads in various towns in Lusaka, central and the copperbelt provinces.
Over 1 trillion kwacha was set aside for the entire project to cover about 300 kilometers of urban roads.
RDA Executive Director Michael Mulenga says despite most contractors not working according to the stipulated time, he is rest assured that all the major works will be completed in the first half of the year.
Dr. Mulenga says the agency is so far impressed with the works done by different contractors on most roads in the city.
He said this after conducting a tour on a number of roads in Lusaka’s Roma, Chelstone, Mandevu and NRDC areas and in Kafue yesterday.
Dr Mulenga has since called on all stakeholders to guard against vandalism on the infrastructure being put up.
