National Roads Fund Toll Gates near Kapiri Mposhi

The Ministry of Works and Supply has collected K108 million in the first quarter of 2016 from toll fees.

Out of that amount, K8 million was collected at the country’s two toll gates at Kafulafula and Manyumbi outside Kabwe.

Works and Supply Minister Yamfwa Mukanga revealed to Journalists in an interview that Government hopes to collect K500 million by end of 2016 in toll fees.

Mr. Mukanga observed that there has been a jump in the amounts collected from 2013 mainly due to increased traffic and efficiency brought about by the introduction of toll gates.

He said K420 million was collected in 2015 and K297 million was collected in 2014 with K42 million collected in 2013 at weighbridges.
Mr Mukanga disclosed that Government is also planning to construct seven more toll gates this year.

He assured that all the funds generated from toll fees will go towards road construction and rehabilitation.
