Zambia and Botswana plan to open Kazungula Bridge in December

GABORONE, (Xinhua) -- The Southern African Development Community has revealed that Zambia and Botswana are adamant to open the Kazungula Bridge in December 2018.

Despite the various challenges that have hindered the completion of the bridge before, Stergomena Lawrence Tax, the Executive Secretary of the Southern African Development Community (SADC) and her team, when addressing a pool of journalists at the SADC headquarters in Botswana on Wednesday, said that the Zambian and Botswana governments are determined to have the bridge functional in two months’ time.

Once open for public use, the use of the Kazungula Ferry to cross the Chobe-Zambezi River at the Kazungula border between Zambia and Botswana will be history. Construction of the 923m long bridge began in 2014.

The bridge, once operational, will reduce trade and transport costs by cutting transit time for freight and passengers, and contribute significantly to SADC’s socio-economic transformation.
