Main­te­nance works on Lu­mumba Road pro­gress­ing well

Daily Nation Newspaper - - READERS FORUM -

Dear Ed­i­tor,

THE govern­ment of the repub­lic of Zam­bia through the Road De­vel­op­ment Agency (RDA) has en­gaged Avic In­ter­na­tional to work on Lu­mumba Road.

The main­te­nance works com­menced in April this year and they are pro­gress­ing very well.

Lu­mumba Road stretches from Great North Road at Man­devu junc­tion to Ka­fue Road near Down Town Mall.

The road was in de­plorable state prior to main­te­nance thereby pos­ing dan­ger to mo­torists.

The road is of eco­nomic sig­nif­i­cance to Zam­bia be­cause most trucks car­ry­ing goods and ser­vices use this road.

This road once com­pleted will have six lanes, three on each side. The main ben­e­fit of this kind of road net­work will en­hance speedy and smooth flow of traf­fic.

This is be­cause there will be no con­ges­tion. Ul­ti­mately, the road car­nage or rather ac­ci­dents will re­duce.

In light of the above, I wish to com­mend the govern­ment on this road project un­der L-400 as the trickle down ben­e­fit will soon be preva­lent.

ELEMIYA PHIRI Lusaka.
