Government’s expanded Emergency Road Rehabilitation Programme Phase 2 (ERRP2) has continued to expand its reach with the latest being Chipinge town.

Residents, businesses and farmers around the bustling Eastern farming border town have expressed joy and gratitude to government following commencement of civil works on the Thiba-Gaza road.

The road, which is arguably one of the busiest in the town had become a death trap as it had become pothole infested.


Just like most road infrastructure in the region, the road stretch was left vulnerable by successive cyclones like the Cyclone Idai which put the whole built infrastructure under severe stress and in need of urgent rehabilitation.


Government has adopted a proactive approach to ensure that at least by the onset of the next rainy season, most critical yet vulnerable road stretches would have been attended to to facilitate smooth movement of goods, especially perishables which need to get to the markets as quickly as possible.


The road is being rehabilitated by the Ministry of Transport and Infrastructure Development in partnership with Albitrim Construction Company.


Chipinge District is famous for giving the nation such export products as Macadamia nuts, Avocado Peas, Dairy Products such as milk and cheese, Wattle extract, timber and a lot more agricultural produce.
