KAZUNGULA BRIDGE PROJECT BEHIND SCHEDULE

Heavy rains and water logging at the site for package 2 of the Kazungula bridge project has caused delays in construction.

This was highlighted by the district officer (development) Mr Mpho Leboane when briefing full council.

He noted that as a result the project was 10 weeks behind schedule.

Package 2 of the project consists of construction of one stop border facilities in Botswana. The project is expected to cost just over P440 million and expected to completed by September next year.

Generally, the overall construction of the Kazungula bridge project is four months behind schedule according to the District Development Committee report, which was presented to council.

“Challenges causing delay range from poor safety record of the contractor (Daewoo E & C Company), shortage of skilled manpower and constant breakdown of key equipment,” Leboane said. (BOPA)
