Zambia - The construction of the Mwami and the Katete electronic weighbridges along the great east road - Nacala Road Corridor Development Project – Phase IV Supplementary Financing - ESMP Summary
The Government of the Republic of Zambia has embarked upon a programme of rehabilitating the road infrastructure in the country. In 1997 the Government through the Zambia Road Development Agency (RDA) launched the Road Sector Investment Programme (ROADSIP) whose main objective was to bring all proposed roads under its mandate to maintainable and manageable levels to speed up socio-economic development at all levels in the country. Consequently, Government has upgraded and maintained a number of trunk, main and district roads in the country. Within the auspices of the ROADSIP, Government through RDA in 2012 launched the Link Zambia 8000 project meant to transform Zambia from being a landlocked country into a land-linked country.
