Masvingo City Council in road rehabilitation drive
Masvingo City Council has embarked on a major road rehabilitation drive that will see the re-constructing, overlaying, and resealing of major roads around the city. The $ 7 million worthy projects are already on track.
The road rehabilitation drive is part of Masvingo City Council’s road infrastructure rehabilitation project which is being funded by ZINARA and the City Council.
There has been noteworthy progress so far. Currently, earthworks are 100% complete in Mucheke D. The surfacing of roads is 95% complete. Resealing of Chesvingo Drive, Mboroma Street, and Smart Street almost complete. Drainage lining along Simon Mazorodze Street is almost complete.
Masvingo City Council Roads foreman, Mr. Stephen Musiyo said, ‘Our aim is to complete the project before the agreed timeframe and we are working hard to achieve that. We have secured all the required material needed to make sure that work progresses well’.
Commenting on the developments, Masvingo City Council Acting Town Clerk, Eng Edward Mukaratirwa said, ‘The rehabilitation of roads in the city is ahead of schedule, despite the deepening economic crisis militating against the multi-million dollar project’.
The scraping of roads levy in 2019 has resulted in the maintenance backlog of roads.
