Lilongwe City Council have received funding of K1.8 billion towards various roads projects within the capital city.
Some of the roads which will be upgraded to tarmac roads include 2Km Chipasula Area 23 road, 2Km NCIC to Ngwenya road, 2KM Chilinde Parish to Kawale road and 3Km Falls to Area 36 road.
However, the council has not approved dual passage for Kenyatta, Mzimba, and Kagame roads.
Other roads to be catered are; Sent Bridge-Chenicheni Mchiti, Senti-Kaunda road, Ngwenya-ZBS, OIBM to Malangalanga, Six Miles-Ntaya road, and Chinsapo Police-Ngulube.
In an interview with Nyasa Times, Member of Parliament for Lilongwe City Centre David Bisnowaty said he was “very happy” that people from his constituency will now enjoy tar marked road.
“The area has been denied access to tarmac roads for long time,” said Bisnowaty.
Lilongwe City South east constituency member of Parliament Rhino Chiphiko said the projects once finished will help in changing lives of poor ordinary Malawians.
Chiphiko said the projects will also create job opportunity to local Malawians.
