Government Cancels Six Road Contracts

Government Cancels Six Road Contracts

The Government has cancelled contracts for six local contractors who failed to fulfil their contractual obligations in Midlands Province.

Midlands provincial roads engineer, Denis Mupfurira said the six local contractors failed to do road rehabilitation works.

The road works include rehabilitation and construction; reseals re-gravelling; spot re-gravelling; grading; drainage structures repair and construction; wash-away and gulley reclamation; erosion works and drains; verge clearing; and pothole patching.

Mupfurira said he could not disclose the names of the companies in question because of contractual obligations.

He, however, named one of the contractors, Transit Homes Contractors, who allegedly failed to avail a design for the planned US$7 million Boterekwa Escarpment road dualisation project.

The dualisation is to be done on an 8-kilometre descent on the Boterekwa escarpment (the Wolfshall Pass) along the Shurugwi road.

The work was supposed to start in June last year but only signage from the Ministry of Transport and Infrastructure Development indicating the name of the project has been erected on the site.

Mupfurira said in future, companies that fail to meet their contractual agreements will be blacklisted. He said:

Government has cancelled six local contractors who have failed to deliver under the Emergency Road Rehabilitation Programme phase two (ERRP 2) in the Midlands Province.

These include Transit Homes Contractors that allegedly failed to come up with a design for the project for the planned US$7 million Boterekwa escarpment road dualisation project.

The others I canโ€™t name because of contractual obligations. Some are fighting the decision to cancel them.

In the Midlands Province, there are scores of local contractors who tendered for projects under ERRP 2 and a lot are now failing to start or complete the projects because some undercharged or failed to come up with proper budgets just to get the tenders from Government.

Now the reality is setting in and they have no funds to start or complete the projects.

I have no bone to chew against local construction companies, but I feel that they are not yet up to that standard to do some of the jobs government is giving them. In other words I am saying there is no enough due diligence being done when these contracts are being bidded. There is something wrong in Midlands Province. Why is it that all seven defaulters came from the same province ?

Tinmike 1ย month ago

I understand wanting to empower our own people through these tenders but how long can government do this ? clearly these local companies aren't fit for the job, just give the tenders to the professionals like Bitumen
