CMC Di Ravenna Starts Drainage Works

IMG_0996The contractor for Drainage works under CP7 and 8 CMC Di Ravenna has started works on the section of the drainage that passes through Evelyn Hone College.

The work area has been fenced off to prevent students and children from straying where the work is being carried out using heavy machinery and where the drain is deep.

During a walk through and site visit of the drainage by a team of personnel from MCA-Zambia, Resettlement Implementation Consultant, Program Manager, Construction Supervising Engineer and Gauff Ingenieure; the contractor was seen on site at Evelyn Hone college clearing the drainage.

On Wednesday and Thursday February 3 and 4, 2016 respectively, the team decided to walk along some sections of the drainage in Garden Compound and Fairview area to determine which sections of the drainage were good and ready for the contractor to commence work.

A number of sections were identified and will soon be handed over to the contractor. IMG_0916

The section in Evelyn Hone college is part of the over 33 kilometres of backbone drainage in the city of Lusaka that runs from ZIPAS area in Kamwala, through the Kamwala trading area, Garden compound and finally discharges into the Ngwerere stream.

These works are a component of the US$355 million Lusaka Water Supply, Sanitation and Drainage (LWSSD) Project funded by the United States Government through the Millennium Challenge Corporation (MCC) in partnership with the Government of the Republic of Zambia.

Works on the entire drainage will cost about US$35 million.
