Zimbabwe's Beitbridge to Chirundu Highway Project


Zimbabwe has agreed to a $2.7bn deal with companies from Austria and China to upgrade the country’s busiest road linking SA with countries to the north.

The deal will be one of the country’s biggest road projects since Independence.

The highway is economically significant as it links landlocked Zimbabwe and Zambia to the Indian Ocean ports of Durban and Richards Bay.

The contract was agreed with closely held Geiger International of Austria and state-owned China Harbour Engineering Company (CHEC), Transport Minister Joram Gumbo told reporters in the capital, Harare, on Monday.

CHEC, a subsidiary of China Communications Construction, will team up with Geiger to upgrade and add more lanes to the 900km highway from Beitbridge on the border with SA to Chirundu on the Zambian border.

The highway has fallen into a state of disrepair as heavy-duty trucks use it to transport everything from maize to mining and power-plant equipment from SA to other parts of the continent.
