Mr. Mubukwanu has told Qfm in an interview that succesful governments have turned a blind eye to the road citing that it is only now that the PF government has decided to pay full attention to the road.
Mr. Mubukwanu notes that government has thus decided to engage the services of a third contractor with the view of speeding up the construction works on the road.
He adds that President Micheal Sata has also taken personal interest in the road and wants to ensure that the road is done to the best of standards and without further delays.
Mr. Mubukwanu explains that now that the rain season has gone, the works have resumed citing that he is hopeful that the contractors will put up a good job.
He further states that once the road is completed, they believe that the number of road traffic accidents that are currently happening on the road will be reduced and that transportation will be faster.
