The city has a road network of 288 kilometres. The network comprises mostly surfaced roads and also, gravel and earth roads. A survey carried out nationwide in 2017 and being updated since shows that the condition of the roads is generally poor.
The roads suffer from lack of investment into their maintenance and into new network additions. Funding for roadmaking and maintenance is constrained by poor budgetary performance and low levels of allocation and even lower levels of disbursement from Zinara.
However the the city is recapitalising its road making fleet such that it can respond timeously to challenges related to road mantainance. to date, the council has procured a motorised grader, front end loader and a tipper. the equipment has assisted the Council to carryout notable works such as rehabilitation of Jason Moyo Avenue, surfacing roads in Hillside Extension and servicing Mucheke D Infill High Density Housing development among others.
