Kitwe-Chingola road to be upgraded – Works Minister


GOVERNMENT has assured Copperbelt residents that it will this year upgrade the Kitwe-Chingola road into a dual carriageway. Minister of Works and Supply Mike Mulongoti said on January 20 that Government will this year also rehabilitate the Chibuluma and Kalulushi-Lufwanyama roads.
“We are committed to ensuring that the road network improves in the country. In fact, all the infrastructure development projects are on course. We are going to expand the Kitwe-Chingola road into a dual carriageway; the Chibuluma road and the Kalulushi-Lufwanyama road will also be worked on this year,” Mr Mulongoti said in an interview.
Mr Mulongoti said Government is in a hurry to develop all parts of the country.
He said Government has appointed a transaction advisor to supervise road projects under the public private partnership (PPP) initiative. Mr Mulongoti said the council of ministers made the appointment in November last year.
