The city of Harare needs at least $100 million every year over a period of five years for the capital city roads to get back to shape.
This came out during today’s media tour of road projects done so far around the capital.
The completed road projects have already gobbled more than $3 million.
Some of the projects done so far are in Sunningdale, Harare Drive, Borrowdale Road and Lorraine Drive.
“The money that we have is just a drop of water in the ocean. We need at least $100 million annually over a period of five years to refurbish the city’s roads,” said Engineer Isaiah Chawatama, the Harare City Council Director of Works.
Also speaking during the tour, a Harare councilor, Herbert Gomba updated the progress made so far in bringing most of the roads back to shape.
“We have completed various projects so far, among them Lorraine Drive, Sunningdale and Harare Drive,” he said.
The Harare City Council is faced with a daunting task as most roads need urgent attention.
