Washed away parts of a road in Lusaka
Washed away parts of a road in Lusaka

A senior Government official has revealed that most of the newly constructed township roads in Lusaka have started developing potholes.

Ministry of Housing and Infrastructure Permanent Secretary Charles Mushota told Journalists in Lusaka that it is disappointing that most of the roads under the Formula One and L400 road projects have started getting damaged.

Engineer Mushota said the development is a confirmation that the majority of the road done were shoddy.

He said by any acceptable standards, a newly constructed road should at least stand a 10-year life span before developing any cracks.

Engineer Mushota said in the case of the L400 road project, it is disheartening that the already done roads are cracking when the entire project has not been completed.

The L-400 is the road project which the PF Government is undertaking through the Road Development Agency to construct, upgrade, pave or expand all the roads in Lusaka.

The project which commenced from June, 2013 is expected to see the targeted 408 Kilometres of roads done with US$348.8 million as project sum.

      And that the evil regime speareded by that chief rigger [email protected] called Kaiser at Statehouse, detest so much anyone reviewing anything exposing their acts of inadequacy and corruption, the next thing you will hear is that Engineer Mushota has been retired in the national interest for speaking to the media about the washed up shoddily done roads without being cleared by State House -that is how ruthless this visionless regime has become, its a shame really!

    • No this is too much! Fellow Zambians these contractors are killing us! We need a comparative study to see the feasibilty of making CONCRETE ROADS as oppossed to these fake tarmac roads that seem to wash away too easily! Chilanga cement over 20 years ago constructed a 5km excellent concrete road to their plant in Ndola why cant the same be replicated elsewhere? We have an abundance of limeston and gypsum.

      OR

      Simply bring back the orginal team of Phonix contractors that are now in Tanzania under a different company name- they are doing an excellent job in Tanzania and Kenya…Zambian contractors are just jokers more interested in buying the latest Hilux to show off how big they are than doing a good job…cretins!

    • Years back, the Federal Government of Nigeria contracted a Germany company called Julius Berger or something like that, to build their roads. Nigeria has not been disappointed todate. This company was given a long lease contract. Each time a road showed stress, the company would hurriedly attend to it. This is why Nigerian roads are some of the best in Africa if not the world. I cannot understand why Zambia cannot take a leaf from Nigeria.

    • Photo number one is a proper misrepresentation. The section shown as damaged has no road constructed. Its an existing gravel or path that needs to be upgraded. That section has not been constructed. Its a clear case of political mileage. Photo two shows the edge of a damaged road. In most cases edges of roads are damaged due to excessive erosive actions towards the discharge points for storm water. This usually happens when the section of that road edge is one the lower section of the road. These photos are on edges and end of construction sections of these roads. In most cases these sections are always susceptible to corrosive action. A clear photo of a damaged road was the one one Luangwa to Feira Road section. These photos are political motivated.

    • Just depressing. Zambia has many qualified and experience civil engineers and Project Managers especially those in the diaspora driving high value capital projects who could drive quality work. Why have we marginalized own qualified resources for fake Chinese contractors? Do we appreciate the burden of substandard work on taxpayers? President Lungu must set himself free and attract the Diaspora professional community asap before Zambia collapse.

    • This Mushota is the uncle to the LTBB blogger Mushota. This is the reason she did not comment. Recently, she was warned against and paid to blog in favour of PF because her uncle has bounced back in favour of PF.

      If you remember she also supports Kabimba because Charles Mushota and Winter are married into the same family. So the falling of Winter led to the falling of Charles. Now the Charles is back as PF appointee, the BB blogger Mushota is back singing praises to PF.

  4. It’s not the contractors fault. RDA lowered the specifications of the roads so as to accommodate quoted prices for more roads with a smaller government budget. You get what you pay for. Let’s not forget the late payments made to contractors

  5. This is not shocking nes. its the new normal. What would surprising is if the roads could have withstood a single rainy season without damage. Incompetent engineers, contractors snd politicians in tow have made a fine mess of things. Hey Brian Mushimba, when is that SI forbidding drivers from using such roads coming. And to think these roads are endlessly inspected by this and that politician= not surprising.

    • The street vendors are a tiny part of the problem. The truth is that these spray-on roads were just a con to justify the stealing of the Eurobonds, the FX reserves that MMD left, the $600m VAT refunds not paid to the mines, and the huge local Tbills and GRZ bonds debts.

Do these contacts ever go for voting on at Parliament? NO. These are quietly dealt with in Lungu’s kitchen.

  8. We must have guarantees on these roads can we have contractors get back and sort out this mess

    0

    • KC: The guarantees are always on all contracts of such magnitude. Any one found wanting will be held liable for such acts. I am very positive that these works will be attended to before the project is finally handed over to the government. It also pains me to read some of the comments without an informed position. Are these roads really under L400 or Formula One. I heard Eng. Mushota making that clarification during one of the live radio programs on this issue. I suspect we are mixing the two programmes. Formula One roads were built earlier than L400 roads in these townships mentioned above. I might be wrong.

  9. THOSE ARE NOT ROADS AT ALL. IT DOESN’T TAKE A CIVIL ENGINEER TO KNOW THAT IT WON’T TAKE EVEN A YEAR FOR THE SO CALLED ‘ROADS’ TO BE DAMAGED AND FINISHED. THOSE SO CALLED ‘ROADS’ ARE BUT JUST CONDUITS FACILITATING STEALING BY RDA AND SOME MINISTERS AND CIVIL SERVANTS. THOSE SO CALLED ‘ROADS’ WHERE SIGNED OFF AS JOB WELL DONE BY RDA AND THE MINISTER CONCERNED. HOW COME THAT EXPERTS (RDA) DID NOT NOTICE THE POOR STATE OF THEM DURING AND AFTER THEY FINISHED CONSTRUCTING THEM? GO TO BOTSWANA AND SEE THE DEFINITION OF A ROAD. CAN’T ZAMBIA REPLACE RDA EXPERTS BY BOTSWANA EXPERTS WHO SEE TO IT THAT PROPER ROADS ARE CONSTRUCTED. ZAMBIA HAS A LONG WAY TO GO.

AND THERE’S TOO MUCH WARNING BY THE PRESIDENT TO HIS MINISTERS WITHOUT ACTION. HIS MINISTERS AND OTHER GOVERNMENT OFFICERS NOW TAKE HIM FOR GRANTED. FIRST, ALL RDA AUTHORITIES MUST BE REPLACED. THERE ARE A FEW CIVIL ENGINEERS WITH PRINCIPLES WHO ARE RELOCATING TO ZAMBIA FROM OVERSEAS THAT I KNOW, ONLY I CAN’T MENTION THEIR NAMES DUE TO DATA PROTECTION ISSUES.

  17. If tangible projects such as road works are fake what more intangible projects such as Kaizer Zulus economy forecasts. As Zambia in general we are developing cracks which I hope will not put Zambia in intensive care shortly. The dyamo dyamo syndrome at work. Give a bululu a contract dyamo and the life span of ten years reduces to ten months. Sadly even the road to twinpalm ZAF base is slowly packing up less than three years in use. Mushota is this what you support …shoddy works????????????????? We sympathize with Zambians as we need better.

  19. First of all, people doing business in heavy duty vehicles, the likes of GBM and HH, must be taxed heavily. Its public knowledge that trucks which are overloaded are one of the causes of these road damages.
    ZCCM had a good policy were all metals and concentrates from the mines were transported by rail, even other heavy goods used the rail for transportation. This HH privatized the mines and gave it to people who have brought in so many trucks on the road and killed rail system- how do you expect the roads to last a day? Just as they have impounded trucks for the post, let government go further to grab all trucks from GBM, HH and others so that we only have rail system for heavy goods.
    Lastly, we have alot of half baked engineers, more especially those belonging to opposition party like…

Imagine HH transporting 200 cows in a truck, the wait alone will damage the roads, then later on those cows will need to keep emptying their stomach and poop will fal on the road and the rains carries poop in blocked drainage….this results into pools of water which damage the road.

Zambia got a loan for these roads, which we will have to pay back hence all of us are stakeholders and it is within our rights to demand value for the money spent. This should not be politicized.

The part that is really damaged is the one in the second picture along the area that is supposedly a drainage not the entire front stretch as portrayed in picture number first.

  23. Munone, no truck can carry 200 cows. Moreover , it is no wait but weight….I travel a lot in Zambia as my nature of work….,I can tell you if Zambians wont change our attitude of poor workmanship, dishonesty, patronage, laxity, and undue care, this country may end as Congo(Zaire). Imagine the pedicle road connecting Copperbelt and Luapula is being tarred by Zambians and Congolese refused to do so saying it is uneconomical. You cant see a farm , a school, clinic along the pedicle road yet people are living along the road…
    Zambians we don’t the President to tell us to develop this country, we must do it whether you are PF, UPND, FDD or Narep. Don’t narrow your thinking to individual even if you hate them. Zambia is bigger than HH or GBM. Work my friend and give the best of your life…

      We need a constitution that bars any person with a previous criminal record or fraud conviction from running for higher office.

      As it stands criminals and fraudstars are ruling Zambia and letting criminality and moral decay permiate to all levels of society.

      Very few reputable private companies will let any one apply for senior management with a criminal or fraud conviction.

      But we all know that everything going wrong in this country is as a result of opposition – more especially HH and his minions. When government gives you contract you always do a bad job to de-campaign government of the day.
      If we gave all contracts to PF they would show you how quality looks like but thats unacceptable and PF is an inclusive party/government.
      You opposition must be doing job jobs or else we cut all contracts and please dont cry foul play.

  24. This is the same case of Feira Road which got damaged a few months ago, up to now repairs have not been done despite being a small section of the road. Dyamo dyamo is causing all this shoddy works. When people talk about these ills in govt someone orders the police force to charge them with treason. We will never develop with corruption at the centre stage let alone not wanting to listen to advice just because you hate someone or because you want to show people that you know it all.

Imagine if great ideas were being shared about to develop Zambia in terms of agriculture, mining, aviation, financial services, debt management, technology and tourism , this would demonstrate that Zambians are a great people like Japanese, Malaysians, Singapores, British. etc.
    A British engineer built a Victoria falls bridge and had it installed along the Zambia river between Zambia and Zimbabwe in 1905 and the Bridge is still being used….. Imagine 1905, the bridge is still strong… Help me fellow Zambians, we still use the bridge both train and vehicles not the cows Munone is complaining…… Be real and give the best….

  43. Ba Mushota a road will have more than 10 years lifespan only when construction standards are followed. Now from the picture above it shows that there is no drainage system. How do you expect the road to last?

  44. If all the roads in Lusaka and CB province must have potholes in order that voters see the need for change in 2021, then so be it. Stated another way, this is great news. Keep it up LT.

  45. This thing has to do with poor planning of infrastructure! Look at the “passage” that was converted to be a road! It is almost unthinkable that this passage could be made into a road! It is too narrow to! It has no sides to be made into drainages and walkways! Second, you are aware that Lusaka requires very deep drainage system because of the bedrock that is close to the surface! Engineers? Town Planners? MPs? Ministers? All are under qualified and must be fired!
