The Road Transport and Safety Agency (RTSA) Director Zindaba Soko says the Agency is impressed with the progress made so far on the Mongu-Kalabo Road.
RTSA Director Zindaba Soko who toured the construction works of the road with his entourage was however quick to expressed concern on the safety of road users once the road was complete in order to avoid loss of lives.
Mr. Soko called on Avic International to put in place safety measures in order to avoid loss of lives once the road was completed.
And RTSA Board Chairperson Webster Nonde noted that since road construction works were still progressing, there was time to put side rails as well as other safety measures for the safety of every road user.
Meanwhile, Avic’s Rankin engineering consultant Gabriel Chibuye told ZANIS in a separate interview that 60 percent the works has been done so far and further said that both the road and bridges were expected to be completed soon.
The Mongu-Kalabo Road once complete will easy movements between Mongu and Kalabo Districts as people depend on water transport and will also connect Zambia to neighbouring Angola.
