Most township road rehab works done – Mbasela

THE rehabilitation of 18 kilometres of township roads in Mufulira on the Copperbelt Province is progressing well and with only two kilometres left to be done.
Mufulira Municipal Council director of engineering services Kabwe Mbasela said in an interview recently that what is remaining on most roads is putting up fittings such as road signs and working on the drainage system.
“We were supposed to rehabilitate a total of 20.05 kilometres of township roads to bituminous standard at a cost of K134 million but the project has been revised to 18 kilometres following a variation order,” she said.
Ms Mbasela said out of the 18 Kilometres that are supposed to be worked on under the variation order, 16 kilometres have already been done and only two kilometres are remaining to be rehabilitated.
Among the township roads that have been rehabilitated so far are Murundu, Kapokola, Accra, Gashi, Peter Mulenga, Kwame Nkrumah, Nalikwanda, Kariba, Mapepo, and Rainbow.
Ms Mbasela said Remmy Chisupa road will be done under the remaining two kilometres.
She said in selecting the Roads to be worked on, the local authority concentrated on rehabilitating those that lead to social infrastructure such as schools and hospitals.
Ms Mbasela said the construction of township roads has added beauty to Mufulira and has eased the movement of motorists.
Mufulira is expected to benefit from the upgrading of another 50 kilometres of roads under the C-400 project which is scheduled to commence soon.
