Construction works of the dual carriageway on the Great North Road in Mpika District – Muchinga Province, which were suspended due to Total Filling station being an obstruction, will now resume.

This is after the demolition of the filling station which is set to be constructed at a designated place.
Mpika Central Member of Parliament who is also Works and Supply Minister, Sylvia Chalikosa disclosed this to Zambia News and Information Services -ZANIS- in an interview.

Ms. Chalikosa said removing the obstacle comes after a lot of interventions, adding that Total Filling station was given the required permit by the Energy Regulation Board, ERB for another spot to put up a filling station.

She explained that Mpika Town Council has since allocated land along the Great North Road for Total Management to put up another Filling station.

Meanwhile Mpika Town Council Secretary Christopher Chikwasha said the building plan for the re-allocation of the Filling Station has been approved.

  1. Why the sudden rush to start completing abandoned projects?
    A simple Total filling station was blocking your path?

  2. I think calling the filling station an obstacle is wrong. Its not like they were there illegally or had no planning permission

  3. How can it be an obstruction just say legal or financial challenges….these are factors you face at planning stage you don’t start construction then hit an obstruction as if you have dug out an ancient grave yard.

  4. Skylab – these dull Lungu Ministers just say things out of their heads…they fail to compensate the filling station owner and call it an obstruction.

  5. And what about the Katende-Kasisi road (ordered by President Sata) which has been left unfinished for FIVE YEARS? If I would order a job to be done, then I follow it up until completion. The corrupt PF government can’t even do that!

  6. Am i the only Jew in town?Isn’t the country broke?We cant even buy electricity which we desperately need…and people are talking about projects. A normal leadership cant have one year of loadshedding whilst still pursuing “projects”.The country has been turned into a shanty compound…

  7. The story is about Construction works of the dual carriageway. Why don’t you give us pictures? Instead you give us a picture of a woman in an office. Does that make sense?

  8. Batobela bakabwalala again..A big institution like Kitwe Central Hospital got K1.5 million Kwacha to clean up the mess while Tasila enjoys 2 miilion kwacha for her shopping .Where does she get the money from KZ with a UK IP address .
