About K3 billion will be spent on upgrading and rehabilitating some roads in the capital, Lilongwe City Council (LCC) Chief Executive Officer, Moza Zeleza, said Monday.
The council boss said about 10 roads in the city will be upgraded to bituminous standard this year.
“The project is fully government-funded and, after the bidding process, people will see contractors working on the roads. So, as a council, we are ready,” Zeleza said.
He said LCC wants to ensure quality in rehabilitation of some roads as, in the past, some contractors did not deliver.
“We have put in place quality control measures that the contractors will follow as they will be doing their work across the city. Any company that does not deliver will be dealt with accordingly,” he added.
The roads earmarked for upgrading are Kamuzu Institute for Sports to Area 23, Biwi Triangle-Penyenye to Area 22, Ngwenya to ZBS Road and 6 Miles to city dumpsite.
Others are Chayamba Junction (M1) to Senti Bridge, Zodiak Area 47 to Siku Filling Station (M12), a section of Malangalanga, Senti to Area 25 and from Chinsapo to Chinguluwe.
