Matabeleland North Provincial Roads Engineer, Xolani Ncube gave an insight into the progress made so far at the wash away point.
“The contractor Drawlink Civil Engineers has just finished the surfacing works on the point that was affected and he has also finished gabions to protect the slope. Outstanding works are ancillary works that is a lined drained. This section has been opened to traffic,” said Engineer Ncube.
The road is strategic for business as it links the resort city with the airport, Kazungula border and Victoria Falls border post.
