Talent Gore

THE Harare City Council has embarked on road rehabilitation works in Dzivarasekwa.

In most suburbs, the basic road network is even in worse condition than the arterial and connecting roads, having been neglected for a long time.

Most of these roads were designed for light use and, as vehicle ownership increased and densities increased, the roads quickly fell into a state of disrepair.

Many don’t even have a tarred surface.

Many of the major roads in urban areas linking suburbs had fallen into a state of serious disrepair.

Many have been fixed by the emergency programme delivered by the central Government.

In a statement, Council said the rehabilitation programme was on going in the city.

“The City of Harare wishes to advise residents, local leadership and all stakeholders on the road reconstruction and maintenance works ongoing in the city,” the Council said.

“Of particular notice, is the ongoing rehabilitation and repair works on Chesa to Rasta roads in Dzivaresekwa Extension Ward 40.

“Motorists and residents are required to cooperate with City of Harare workers on the ground during the exercise.”
