Progress Report for the Kazungula Bridge and Border Facilities Project

Author
SADC-Botswana-Zambia
Description

The Kazungula Bridge Project is part of the North-South Corridor, which links the mineral-rich regions of Zambia and the DRC through Botswana and the port of Durban in South Africa. Crossing at the Kazungula Border Post is currently done by a ferry moving about 30 trucks per day, which is slow and accident prone contributing to delays, high transport costs and hence justification of the bridge.

The objectives of the Project:

  1. To replace the ferry service between the two countries, which suffers from slow traffic clearance as a result of limited carrying capacity.
  2. To enhance transport links and operations between the two affected countries and other SADC member States thereby strengthen regional integration, economic growth and development.

This is a monthly progress report covering up to the end of August 2010.
