The Road Development Agency (RDA) has set aside KR65 million for purchasing equipment for the Pave Zambia 2,000 road project.
RDA Chief Executive Officer Bernard Chiwala said the project involves the rehabilitation of a total of 2,000 kilometres of urban and township roads in the ten provincial centres across the country.
Mr. Chiwala was speaking in Lusaka West today after a tour of the equipment site with journalists.
He explained that the project would be executed through the utilization of concrete block paving and cobblestone technology over a period of five years.
He said the project would mainly focus on repairing the existing township road network from the current poor condition to paved conditions.
Mr. Chiwala said RDA was waiting for the ground breaking ceremony of the project on 30th August this year before commencing works.
And speaking at the same occasion, RDA Senior Manager Thomson Banda said works would start when the equipment arrives.
