The Government of the Republic of Zambia (GRZ) through its policies and pronouncements has put much emphasis on the development of the road infrastructure. This has been highlighted in the revised Six National Development Plan (SNDP) for 2011 -2016.
From the First National Development Plan (1966-1970) to the SNDP (2011-2016), successive Governments have recognized the development of road infrastructure as a catalyst in the social and economic development process in Zambia. Infrastructure development is one of the four major priority sectors for Government in the revised SNDP which has a total allocation of ZMW 21.48 billion for major transport infrastructure that will encompass roads and bridges.
