Lilongwe Roadways Will Be Functional For Public Soon
The Ministry of Lands, Housing and Urban Development has successfully managed to construct a total 6.2km length in Lilongwe city of Malawi. It is reported that the project is worth the US $3.8m. Sector 13, 16, and 19 of Lilongwe city will soon access the newly constructed roadway.
The newly appointed Minister of Lands, Kamlepo Kalua, showed satisfaction with the standards being followed and its progress. In further discussion, he was a bit anxious about the inferior quality of construction in the zone.
Kamlepo Kalua said the country is advancing with the world. The Minister warned the contractors that if they are not capable enough to develop something up to the modern time’s mark, they must stay back. The government is intended to upgrade the panorama of Malawi, especially Lilongwe.
Challenges Faced By The Contractor During Construction
The contract manager of Construction and Machinery, Chimwemwe Ngoma, informed that they had to surpass multiple challenges during construction, including undersupply of premium quality gravel, displacement of utilities, fence encroachment, unusual rainfall and sabotage of signboards. Despite all of these hurdles, they have managed to work until only 300m remains to be completed. It is expected that the project will be completed by May, and Lilongwe will be open for new developments.
