Transport, Works, Supply and Communication Minister Yamfwa Mukanga has assured the nation government under the leadership President Edgar Lungu is still committed to completing all road and railway projects within their specified time frames.
Mr. Mukanga says much as there are some challenges with regards the slow pace at which some works are being done, government is working around the clock to ensure that all is well.
Mr. Mukanga notes that his coming to the same ministry gives him another opportunity to work extra hard and deliver to the expectations of the people and government.
He says the Patriotic Front government will not sway away from President Micheal Sata’s plan to link the country to other parts through construction of quality roads and improving the railway transport.
He points out last year government through the Road Development Agency (RDA) had done excellent road projects , construction of bridges and made serious improvements on railway transport.
Mr. Mukanga says it is government’s desire to make possible and easy for people to move from one town to the other.
