GOVERNMENT has commissioned another stretch along the Harare-Beitbridge highway in yet another milestone for the Second Republic in improving the country’s road network.

Government is moving with speed to complete the rehabilitation of the Harare-Beitbridge Highway after another six kilometre stretch of the busy highway was officially opened this Monday.

The stretch brings the completed distance to 460 kilometres out of the 580 kilometres of the highway.

The motoring public heaped praise on the Second Republic for attending to the road network.

“We are very grateful for what our government is doing on this road. I am a cross boarder bus driver and as such the issue of time is very critical. The road is now perfect and we are having some good experiences on the highway, said a motorist.

Another motorist said, “This is highly commendable. You will be evil not to see such good works. It is indeed good that we have a caring government that is making things happen. The road is now ok, and we hope this will reduce accidents as well. We used to have constant breakdowns on this road. Now that it has been fixed, we are very excited as we can now cruise without any challenges. I want to thank the President for the wonderful development we are witnessing on our roads.”

Government pledged to continue upgrading key infrastructure in line with the National Development Strategy One.

“We are very excited as we commission this stretch today. We are indeed walking the talk and the time for folding arms in office are over. The place is a wetland and the constructor had to go through a lot before managing to put in place the critical infrastructure. All I can say is that we are almost complete with this major highway. We now want to concentrate on the feeder highways like the Mvuma–Gweru Road as well as the Kwekwe–Mvuma Road. We are also ceased with the issues of Beitbridge highway as well as the Bulawayo Victoria falls. All I can say is that we are winning the game of rehabilitating our roads,” said the Minister of Transport and Infrastructure Development, Honourable Felix Mhona.

The country has witnessed unprecedented upgrade of key infrastructure like roads, airports, and ports of entry under the second republic with government creating a conducive environment for investors to do business in Zimbabwe.
