Karibib-Otjimbingwe road prioritised for re-gravelling

29 October 2018 | Infrastruktuur
The Okahandja-Okandjira and Karibib-Otjimbingwe roads will be re-gravelled over the next three years, the minister of works and transport, John Mutorwa, has said.

Mutorwa was responding to questions from Swanu of Namibia president Usutuaije Maamberua in the National Assembly on Thursday.

He said the two roads have been put on the Roads Authority’s (RA) re-gravelling programme.

With regards to when the roads will be upgraded to bitumen standard, Mutorwa said recognition must be given to the fact that there are regions and constituencies in Namibia that do not have the luxury of any roads, be it gravel or bitumen standard.

“As leaders we must be concerned with those regions that have received less attention in the last 20 years,” he said.

Mutorwa noted that the Karibib-Otjimbingwe road is being prioritised for re-gravelling, but this will only be realised during the 2019/20 financial year.

“We all know that with the economic downturn, it is impossible to implement all projects at once, therefore some of the projects will only commence after the completion of ongoing ones,” he stated.

Mutorwa further said with regards to erecting road signs along public roads, any applicant may approach the Roads Authority to seek consideration for the approval of such a sign to be erected next to a road for direction to a place of interest.

“All road traffic information signs erected by the Roads Authority are done in accordance with the SADC Road Traffic Signs Manual and the Namibian Road Traffic Signs Policy,” he said. - Nampa
