About 250 local contractors in Kitwe, Chingola and Mufulira Districts have been nominated under the Zambia Road Township Project ZRTP 300 as part of the 20% sub contracting policy.
Consortium of Local Contractors and Allied Suppliers President John Chilupula has stated that the three districts are expected to exhaust the over $ 32.6 million.
He says there is now need to work out a system to see how best all contractors in the three districts can benefit from the funds being released by government towards road works.
Mr Chilupula has noted that most local contractors in Chingola have not benefited from the Zambia Township Road Project hence the need for more engagement.
He further adds that the consortium will also be engaging local contractors and suppliers following the liquidation of Konkola Copper Mine.
