By ZBC Reporter

The district development fund, DDF, in Mashonaland east province has resumed road projects which had been put on hold due to the COVID 19 pandemic.

As part of complimenting government efforts in fighting the COVID 19 pandemic, the DDF in Mashonaland east province has embarked on a road rehabilitation program starting with projects it had put on hold due to the lockdown.

Acting provincial coordinator Mrs Phoebe Maphosa who toured some of the projects in Murewa said: “they want all the roads in the province to be navigable.”

“We want to compliment government efforts in fighting the COVID 19 pandemic so that all roads are passable so we have embarked on a massive road rehabilitation program which will cover the whole province,” she added.

One of the big projects the DDF is embarking on is the monte casino bridge in Macheke which is expected to be complete by October this year.

Provincial roads engineer Dennis, Dzvene also said: “we had put on hold construction of this bridge because of the lockdown but we have now resumed and we expect to complete it by October.”

The DDF is targeting to rehabilitate 3700 km of the road network in the province.
