About 65 per cent of the urban tarring road works has been attended to by Sable Construction Company in Chipata.
Council Civil Engineer, Costain Mvula however, told Breeze News that no road has so far been completed from the whole 15. 74 kilometres.
He says what is remaining is for the contractor to put asphalt layer on the roads.
The 18 months project, which started last year, is expected to be completed in September this year.
Mr. Mvula however says that the contract may be extended with the change of season.
And Mr Mvula says that with the engagement of a consultant, it will assist in ensuring that the works being carried out are of good quality.
The local authority has engaged East Consult as a consultant for the township road tarring works.
