Zimbabwe’s City of Harare has resumed rehabilitation and resurfacing of the heavily potholed roads estimated to cost US $50m.
Harare roads were last year declared by the government a state of disaster after it had deemed them impassable as well as contributing to major accidents during the current heavy down pours.
During a site visit to the ongoing roads resurfacing, HCC’s Director of Works, Engineer Isaiah Chawatama stated that, they were pleased with the progress made so far despite some challenges which are stalling the progress.”
