Road Agency (RDA) will soon start charging fees for using roads

THE Road Development Agency (RDA) will soon start constructing toll gates countrywide at a cost of K4 million in a bid to widen revenue collection to finance road infrastructure maintenance.

RDA chief executive officer Charles Mushota said at a media breakfast in Lusaka yesterday that the introduction of toll gates, which will commence on November 1, is a well-intended project as it will raise funds to enhance safety on the roads.
“This is a well-intended programme which will be used to enhance financing and ensure safety for people on the roads,” he said.
Mr Mushota said the toll gate fees are a sustainable way of raising funds for road maintenance.
He said the initiative is a Government project and that the toll gate charges will range from K10 for small vehicles to K160 for heavy goods or abnormal load vehicles.
“This is a very sustainable way of maintaining our roads. It is being done everywhere. It is our appeal to the people to embrace and support this project,” Mr Mushota said.
Mr Mushota said the introduction of toll gates on Zambian roads will begin with heavy load vehicles at weighbridges around the country while the second phase of the project will start in September next year, when toll gate plazas will have been built.
He said RDA will begin with charges for heavy load vehicles at weigh bridges because it does not have the supporting infrastructure which will only be available in September next year, when charging of all vehicles will start.
Mr Mushota said people should not shun toll gates as they are a better way of raising funds for road infrastructure maintenance.
He said the toll gates will be properly monitored to ensure accountability so that the revenue collected from the facilities is used for intended purposes.
Mr Mushota said the agency will embark on a nationwide campaign to sensitise people on the importance and use of toll gates.
He urged people to always demand receipts whenever they use a toll gate once implementation of the project starts.

    The plan for Zambia is to have 4 toll booths between Ndola and Lusaka – an equal distance. Each will cost about $1.88. Total cost about $7.50.

    I agree that it is a good idea for road users to pay for the roads, but the fees are pretty high.
