Brickwork at Epworth Magistrate Court is now complete and all is now set for the commencement of the roofing stage, ahead of the official opening of the new court house early 2022.
The construction team at the site has been burning midnight oil trying to ensure that the project completes by year end.
In an interview, Judicial Service Commission Secretary Mr Walter Chikwana said only the roof work is outstanding, and they should be done by January 2022.
Epworth has brought a heavy case burden to the judiciary, prompting authorities to build the court in the town.
The construction work is in line with the Government’s aim to set up magistrates court in suburban areas in achieving an upper middle economy by 2030 and the National Development Strategy 1 (NDS1).
