Blantyre City Council Chief Executive Officer Ted Nandolo told the second ordinary Council meeting on Monday that actual ground work on the road would commence by March 1, 2015.

“The Highway will soon be complete and people should be assured that from 1st March equipment and workers will be on the road to start their work,” said Nandolo.

Nandolo assured people that preparatory works are underway and soon equipment will be ready to continue with the project.

Phase III of the project would see the duo carriage on the Highway being extended from Sachas roundabout, at Yinnakis, to Illovo roundabout in Limbe.

The project is being funded by Japanese International Cooperation Agency (JICA) and the Japanese contractor started his work in November.

Dont show our dunderheadness here,indeed Bingu started it,but logistical and political malaise backtracked it.Fingerpointing will take us nowhere,the road passes through a very busy segment of the commercial city,so thorough consultations and planning has to be contextualized before anything else.Multiparty democracy,is misunderstood as decontinuing all major projects initiated by the previous regime,thats what exactly happened to discredit the then outgoing regime.Donors too have different approach towards a particular party leading the govt at what particular time.So dont just say how long and at what length of time,these are consequential projects.

This road was supposed to be closed only a month or two and all work completed but with our stupid work ethics and mentality add politicisation of projects multiply by stealing it has taken 3 years and counting. That is exactly what you expect from the poorest country on earth

Back to the traffic jams that are gonna be caused by stupid contractors u give these jobs who fail to deliver! Hope this time it is properly planned so traffic flows smoothly not taking 3 hours just for 1km. The city council should make proper plans for ppl not to be inconveinienced.

How can a 15 km road take 3 years? This is a sick country.

This project started before Bingu kicked the bucket and we’re still talking about it 3 years later! How many KMs is this road? In serious countries they finish such roads within 2 months. Zoona 15 km taking 3 years? How can we develop like that? Yet people are just phwiii, just because it’s their tribes men ruling. Mxiii!
