The First Couple Being Briefed
President Peter Mutharika on Wednesday launched the construction of MK4.6 billion by-pass road that will go through several locations Blantyre and expressed optimism that the 186-kilometre road will be finalised in three to four years.

The Blantyre bypass ring road is expected to facilitate easy and fast mobility of goods and services as one of the key factors at the centre of promoting the country’s economic growth.

“It is my expectation that the by – pass road will minimise traffic congestion in the roads of Blantyre City. It will also enhance movement of goods and people,” Mutharika said after the ground-breaking ceremony of the road.

He added that the development will improve the road network in the country and add to the beauty of Blantyre City and other rural areas.

The by-pass snakes from Chigumula to Mpemba through Michiru to Chileka Airport. Then it proceeds from the airport to Lunzu – Mapanga – Zomba – Chiradzulu turn – off before connecting Mzedi to Bangwe.

Construction works for the road will be done in phases and the first phase will start from Chigumula to Mpemba.

Mutharika said from Misesa – Chigumula, construction works will be completed within a year with the rest of the stretches taking three to four years.

Minister of Transport and Public Works, Jappie Mhango called for stakeholders to assist government in the transport sector in ensuring that the final product should be of high and quality standard.
