Sable Construction Company has delayed to complete works on the 35 kilometre Chipata urban roads.
The contract period for the 153.5 million Kwacha project is 8 months from the date of the Variation Order approval on September 14th 2015.
But when contacted for a comment Sable Construction Company Operations Manager Nazir Alloo acknowledged the delay but says the company has some contractual issues to resolve before resuming the road works.
Mr. Alloo says he is aware that the company has delayed to complete the works but is committed to finish when contractual issues are resolved.
And when asked if the company has been paid by government for the works, Mr. Alloo could neither confirm nor deny but maintained that only contractual issues are to be resolved.
The company has assured that it will finish the road works on Kalindawalo, Findeco and Kawalala roads before the rain season this year.
