Friday, 17th May, 2024

MBABANE:Eswatini has been rated among top African countries with best quality roads.

Stastita and other research platforms rated eSwatini among top twenty(20) countries in African continent with quality roads, with South Africa and Namibia among the top ten(10).

But despite the significant improvements including the completion of the Gege-Sicunusa road, the Manzini-Mbadlana road that connects the King Mswati International Airport, the country is still struggling with poorly maintained roads in the rural areas.

The newly completed Gege-Sinucusa road  services three boarder posts that include Sicunusa, Mahamba and Gege.

It seems the construction of roads forms part of the Government development agenda as the Ministry of Public Works and Transport recently released a statement, informing the Nation about the commencement of the construction of the Siphofaneni-Sithobelweni road

Neal Rijikernberg,the Minister of Finance subsequently announced a R50million budget for construction damaged road and this, comes two(2)months after Chief Ndlaluhlaza Ndwandwe,the Minister of Public Works and Transport toured the road and promised that Government will rehabilitate it.

The road that will also cover Siphambanweni,Maloma and Nsalitje,has been included in the budget and described as “MR21”

A resident of Sithobelweni confirmed to this Swaziland News on Sunday that,the construction team has already arrived and commenced preparations within the area,to construct the road.

Eswatini has the Mbabane-Manzini highway that also connects with the Oshoek boarder in the north-western part of the country.

Construction companies in eSwatini include Inyatsi Construction Group, The Mbhilibhi Group, Afrotim Construction, Dan and Don Construction, BSA Group of Companies, AG Thomas, Du-Van Developers and Steffanutti Stocks among others.
