Local Government, Housing and Infrastructure Minister Charles Banda says works at the Munali flyover bridge are at 99 percent and the bridge should be ready for commissioning by the end of February.
“The bridge at Munali should be ready for commission by the end of this month, “he said.
Dr. Banda said the bridge which was supposed to be commissioned earlier, was delayed due to Covid 19 travel restrictions as the needed material could not get into the country in good time.
The minister also toured the under construction long acres flyover bridge and New local government offices in long acres.
Dr. Banda said works at the long acres flyover bridge are at 70 percent and the bridge should be ready for commissioning by April.
“According to information from the contractors and consultants we are at 70 percent,” he said.
The Minister also said works at the under construction new local government offices were supposed to be completed by march but the Covid 19 restriction have also delayed the works, but the offices should be ready soon.
He said he is hopeful that the projects will be completed and ready for use by mid-year.
The minister said this when he toured projects under the 289 million US dollar Lusaka decongestion project.
Ba Mwankole inflating figures so that ba kwatemo share. Never had a waste government than we are seeing today. August 12th, where are you?
When an activity catches on in Zed it just becomes epidemic. What is with the flyovers? OK. I will put it another way: go ahead and decongest the city with the flyovers BUT please make sure the EIZ and other professionals are involved BEFORE commencement and during construction.
Now that the new HQ for Ministry of Local Govt and Housing nearing completion. Why can’t govt shift ZEMA to old local govt HQ and make ZNS take occupation of current ZEMA premises as it will decongest ZNS HQ. I have been to both ZNS and ZEMA offices on business several times. The ZNS and ZEMA management should engage relevant wings of govt on this suggestion. Currently parking at ZNS and ZEMA are a challenge due to limited space. The importance of ZEMA should not be over emphasized as its activities are ever rising and there is need to get bigger premises. I hope this massage has got to relevant authorities or stakeholders.
I had a look today at that Munali bridge – maybe it is ready by end of February NEXT YEAR – doesn’t look like finishing at all in two weeks time….! Typical PFake news….!
Great development under pf. A working government. Upnd goats are now upset. Go and jump off the bridge when it is finished kiki
WHY IS THE 1% STILL AN ISSUE ON MUNALI BRIDGE? IMMEDIATELY BIZWELL MUTALE IS ADOPTED FOR MUNALI CONSTITUENCY AN INTERCHANGE SHALL BE CONSTRUCTED. THAT FLY OVER AS U SAY IS NOT SERVING ANY PURPOSE
The working government is doing it’s mandate to the full..
These bridges are hideous contraptions..I can’t believe anyone can design such a bridge in a city in 2020. Not even laughable
Sonta! Echalo baliwamya
Just replay the videos for arcades and makeni is the commissioning necessary? Just asking
@Tarino Orange I agree absolutely. These are dangerous , hideous and egregious contraptions indeed!
Eagle’s…. – imagine our children will payback $289m for all these useless bridges that will be demolished due safety concerns because someone has messed up with designs to opt for cheaper materials to pocket funds.
Gayzar Zulu and his gay friends clearly have not seen this Munali bridge, otherwise they wouldn’t be so proud. Yes, indeed great FAKE work from the worst and most corrupt government the country has ever seen. Go hide your gay heads in shame
Continue hating on us and our infrastructure. We don’t build them to please foreign diasporans like you who have lost zambian citizenship. Why are you affected by our infrastructure when you live as asylums that side. Hahaha
What about that bridge which was condemned by his PS. Is this the one?
Gayzar Zulu disciple of a failing government riddled with corruption – competing who will become champion of corruption in 2021.
Sontapo tumuno ubombele, we don’t talk much but let our works do the yapping.
