About 15 million Kwacha will be needed for the expansion of Kapata Bus Station in Chipata district.
Chipata Municipal Council Director of Planning, Kaonga Namenda told Breeze News that a foreign cooperating partner has already come on board and has done the final assessment at the station.
Mr. Namenda says the expansion of Kapata Bus Station will allow accommodation of more Buses including those operating on local routes, adding that the council is looking for a station that will be able to handle increased cargo with the coming of a one stop border facility at Mwami border.
Mr. Namenda however, said the cost for the expansion of the station may have to change depending on what the co-operating partner will submit to the council.
Meanwhile plans are underway to have an intercity bus terminus in Chipata to accommodate buses operating on international routes.
Mr. Namenda says this will be done through PPP, the Private Public Partnership.
He says the Chipata Inter City Bus terminus will be accommodating buses from Mozambique and Nakonde through the new roads that are being constructed.
Mr. Namenda says the Chipata Inter City Bus terminus, which will accommodate a modern market, will be constructed in the outskirt of the Central District Business area to decongest the Town.
