Harare to invest in roads and water infrastructure
The City Council of Harare unveiled an annual budget worth US$$272.7m, much going towards roads and water infrastructure development.
Infrastructure development plans include reconstruction and rehabilitation of 53 km of roads across Harare municipality.
Asphalt will be overlaid on 8 km of CBD roads and trunk routes, while 120 km will be re-gravelled and compacted. Six footbridges will also be constructed. Planned civil works also involve unblocking 16 km of stormwater pipes.
The Harare City Council will invest in installation of new water and sewer pumps and aging water and sewer pipe networks will also be revamped to prevent leakage of treated water.
All these projects are set to be completed next year, and each will involve use of modern technology to make it possible for regular and easy maintenance.
