PRESIDENT Sata will today launch the construction of the K561 million Kitwe-Chingola dual carriageway which is expected to create over 500 new jobs.
The launch comes barely days after he launched the multi-billion Kenneth Kaunda International Airport that will create further jobs.
The road construction project involves upgrading of the existing 45.5 kilometres to the north-bound carriageway from its junction with Kazembe junction in Kitwe to Kasumpe junction in Chingola.
The south-bound carriageway works involve the construction of the new carriageway.
This is contained in a statement issued in Lusaka yesterday by special assistant to the President for press and public relations, George Chellah.
“The scope of work will also include the construction of a new bridge at Mwambashi River and reinforcement of the existing bridge at the same location,” Mr Chellah said.
“The project will be implemented over a period of two years and is expected to generate over 500 jobs during the construction period,” Mr Chellah said.
And President Sata has underscored Government’s desire and resolve to improve road infrastructure in the country through implementation of the on-going Link Zambia 8,000 road project as enshrined in the Patriotic Front manifesto.
President Sata is confident that his administration is on course in implementing campaign promises.
