Harare-Masvingo-Beitbridge road rehabilitation is on track with a total of 265 Kilometres having been opened to traffic to date.
Government contracted the following companies to work on rehabilitating the highway; Bitumen 62.4km; Fossil 64km; Masimba 49.2km; Tensor 46.2km; Exodus 40km and DoR Inhouse 7.2km.
Government is fulfilling the ZANU PF 2018 people's manifesto of promoting infrastructure investments in energy, transport, housing, water and sanitation.
In 2021, Government resolved that all roads in the country be declared a State of Disaster in order to facilitate the release of funds for maintenance and repair works. Restorative works will cover all urban areas as well as rural trunk roads paving way for the standardisation of quality roads under the Ministry of Transport and Infrastructure Development.
Expansion of the road rehabilitation under Government's Emergency Road Regabilitation Programe (ERRP) was set up to target urban roads and comes at the backdrop of neglect and corruption by MDC run councils.
