After fifteen months of the project being behind schedule the pave Zambia road project has finally re-started on selected township gravel roads in Mushili, Ndeke, Itawa and Mackenzie townships of Bwana Mkubwa Constituency.
The pave Zambia road project started in November 2017 with the road development agency RDA working with local Zambian contractors’ frog limited and virgin services limited.
The pave Zambia road project should have been completed within two to three months that is by February 2018 however, RDA was unable to supply the local contractors with the pavers despite the contractors doing 90% of road works by May 2018.
There are also outstanding payments to the local contractors who employ over 100 of local youths.
Bwana Mkubwa Constituency, Member of Parliament, Dr. Jonas Chanda is impressed that project execution is underway.
