The US$88 Million Mbudzi Traffic Interchange Taking Shape

The US$88 Million Mbudzi Traffic Interchange Taking Shape

The US$88 million Mbudzi traffic interchange is taking shape with civil engineering works underway.

Notable progress has been made in the construction of reinforced concrete and steel structures that will hold pillars for the extension of the Glen Norah bridge, with the construction of diversionary routes also underway.

Once complete, the project is expected to ease congestion at the Mbudzi roundabout, which has been a headache for motorists during peak hours. A motorist told ZBC News:

There is congestion at this roundabout and we hope the interchange will remedy the situation, We are happy about this project because it will ensure smooth movement of traffic, is a good project for national development and we hope it will be completed soon.

Meanwhile, the rehabilitation of Seke road under the emergency road rehabilitation programme has resumed.

Reconstruction has commenced at Chinhamo area, Manyame Bridge and Zororo and Chikwanha junctions.

Senators recently expressed concern over the state of the Seke road indicating that some of the contractors who had rehabilitated the road only recently had done a poor job.

Residents say lots of accidents were happening in the area because of the road which was in bad shape.

The government’s economic blueprint, the National Development Strategy one (NDS1) emphasises infrastructure development as key in the realisation of national priorities.

There is need for massive infrastructure development that act as a catalyst for economic growth rather than piecemeal infrastructure projects. There is massive unemployment which need massive infrastructure projects and opening up of closed companies and factories. There is no way development can be alluded to when companies in industrial areas are now shells and railway lines which were used as feeder routes are now impassable because of overgrown trees. It does not need rocket science to take note that rejuvenation or supposed industrial take off is piecemeal and not adequate to spur industrial growth and employment

At least I'm not the only one seeing something wrong with that figure. It's just too much for an interchange

While the infrastructural development is good, the inflated prices of these projects bleed the fiscus. There is variance between the estimated cost by South African engineers who were part of the design project(44/45 million US $) and the estimated cost that the Ministry of Transport put out (85 million US $). The Minister tried to justify the variance by proffering threadbare argument about diversion routes contributing to the inflated cost. Nothing can be further from the truth.
