Copperbelt province Minister Japhen Mwakambe has officially re-opened part of the road on Dag Hammersjoid commonly known as the under bridge which was partially closed to pave way for rehabilitation works.

Mr. Mwakalombe said infrastructure development remains part of government’s top agenda as it is key to economic development.

Mr. Mwakalombe who is also Chongwe Member of Parliament expressed delight that the road which was once a nuisance to motorists and other road users has now been permamently worked on, and has since saluted the business community in Ndola for having come to the fore.

He said infrastructure development also remains one of the major pillars in the Seventh National Development Plan(7NDP).

And speaking earlier, Ndola Mayor Amon Chisenga thanked the Copperbelt provincial Administration for helping the local authority to engage the business community where an amount in excess of 10 Million Kwacha was raised to rehabilitate the portion Of the road.

Mr. Chisenga said the under bridge road was for a long time been in a bad state, a situation that gave room to people to abandon the road which leads to the industrial area.

Present at the ceremony was Ndola Central Member of Parliament Emmanuel Mulenga who called on companies in the district and the province as a whole to emulate what their counterparts had done.

Mr. Mulenga commended the contractor China Jiangxi for putting up quality works which he expressed no doubt will stand a taste of time.

  1. Really laughable, the entire leaders..the minister, the mayor, the member of parliament the town clerk even camera men all had to leave their offices to go and watch the re opening of the under bridge…The only person who needed to be there is the Director of engineering from Ndola City Council period!!I bet allowances were even drawn just for this.
    I have also just finished making a foot bridge with pieces of old timber to enable me cross the little stream near my home how about some attention please!!!

  2. May they work on that footbridge in the background now…it’s been in a bad state since the days of Dag Hammarskjold stadium!

  3. Seriously this is total lunacy! Even fixing of the road u have to officially open. A stupid small stretch of the road which was neglected by the same koswe. This must come to an end! Just do you’re jobs people without wasting taxis payers time doing official openings

  4. These politicians should be serious. This road would have been opened by just letting the traffic flow through. This entourage masquerading to be working should be ashamed of themselves.

  5. I feel such Morden developments are happening for the first time so let them be part of the history and were a round of applause is needed let’s give them because that stretch was in a bad state, so we really thank you and continue

  6. Mr. Mulenga commended the contractor China Jiangxi for putting up quality works which he expressed no doubt will stand a taste of time. AWE SURE EVEN 1KM STRETCH CANT BE GIVEN TO A ZAMBIAN.
