IMPROVING EXISTING ROAD INFRASTRUCTURE
Through the implementation of a strategic road rehabilitation programme, it is anticipated that at least 80% of the Ministry’s road network will be upgraded to provide optimal service. Simultaneously, the upgrade of local government and orphaned roads will ensure a consistent road connectivity throughout the nation.
