ED DELIVERS ANOTHER MAJOR PROMISE TO THE PEOPLE OF ZIMBABWE; MBUDZI FLYOVER PROJECT SET TO COMMENCE

Industries are on rebound. For the first time in decades, Zimbabwe has started paying back loans it owes international creditors.

President Emmerson Dambudzo Mnangagwa is delivering killer punches. His political rivals and critics are now confused.

The economy is stable, cash is available in all auto-teller machines. Landmark projects are noteceable at every corner of the country.

Industries are on rebound. For the first time in decades, Zimbabwe has started paying back loans it owes international creditors.

This promising picture is contrary to the gloomy and unpleasant situation which President Mnangagwa inherited in 2017 when he took over power.

Soon after taking power the humble leader promised to rebuild Zimbabwe brick by brick and asked for patience and time from the great people of Zimbabwe.

True to his word, the once economic giant in Sadc region is embarking on ambitious journey to reclaim lost glory and craw back to the top.

Among the many landmark projects set to take off in few months to come, is the commencement of Mbudzi flyover.

The current roundabout is a nightmare and during peak hours is left choked by heavy traffic.

The nightmare will soon be talk of the past as Mbudzi roundabout will be replaced by a magnificent flyover.

Works at the flyover project will start at the intersection of Simon Mazorodze Road, Chitungwiza Road and High Glen Road.

Simon Mazorodze is the section of the main Harare-Beitbridge national highway running through southern Harare, so it has intercity and international traffic as well as being a main feeder road from the southern suburbs and western Chitungwiza into the city centre.

It is also the main link from these residential areas to the heavy industrial sites.

High Glen Road is the main link for the vast south-western suburbs of Harare, home to at least a quarter of the capital’s population, as well as serving the western parts of the main industrial area.

The combination of all these needs means that not only is traffic heavy, but there are high ratios of heavy trucks and buses in the traffic.

The flyover will be second for Harare. The first was built in the 1970s at the other end of Simon Mazorodze Road where it joins Cripps Road, Abdel Gamal Nasser Road and Fidel Castro Road with a branch into Lytton Road.
