1464 Zambia's Ministry of Works and Supply is budgeting US$273.24 million for its 2010 roads budget. Meanwhile a further $500 million is required for upgrades and maintenance of roads that have been damaged already. The Zambian Government is pushing to carry out all road repairs that have previously been delayed due to lack of funds. The Copperbelt Province of the country has been earmarked for attention due to its importance to the Zambian economy. There are numerous key road projects in Zambia requiring work including surfacing of the Kasempa-Kabompo-Chavuma road, upgrades to the Kasama-Luwingu road and the Kasama-Mbala-Mpulungu road project. Other projects include maintenance to the Ukwimi-Sonja, upgrades to urban roads in Chipata and Lusaka, the Zimba-Livingstone road revamp and improvements to the Luansobe-Mpongwe link. Also pending are the Ndola-Kitwe-Chingola and the Nasanga farm block roads as well as maintenance of the Luangwa bridge and the Lusaka International Airport link.
