Eight months after a long wait marred with numerous delays and nuisance road users will now have access to ply on Blantyre’s Livingstone and Churchill roads in Limbe town.

The Blantyre City Council (BCC) made the long awaited announcement on Tuesday.

According to officials of the BCC, major works on Livingstone and Churchill roads project will be completed by October 20 directly signaling the official resumption of the normal traffic service in the larger section of Limbe.

“In this regard, traffic flow will revert to normal on Livingstone Avenue and Churchill roads in Limbe,” adds part of a press statement signed by BCC’s Acting CEO.

Further Alfred Chanza says, “Traffic from Illovo Roundabout to Blantyre direction shall only use the Livingstone Avenue where as those going towards Illovo Roundabout shall use Churchill road as it used to be.”

The roads are reverting to one way traffic arrangement. In addition Chanza has advised all road users to observe road signs to avoid accidents.

The CEO has further appealed to the general public to avoid vandalism of road facilities and report to the council or any nearest Malawi Police Service (MPS) station, “If anyone is found vandalizing the road facilities.”

 The construction works were being implemented under the Project for Improvement of Blantyre City Roads (Phase III).

The MK3 billion project which commenced last March led to the closure of some of the major sections in Blantyre’s leading trading centre to pave way for the World Kiagaitsu Kogyo Company Limited to implement the construction works.

Limbe is the site to many of the industries in Blantyre District. The town is best known for Indian (East Asian) traders but there has also been an influx of Chinese owned businesses growing in the area.

Limbe is located 11 kilometers east of Blantyre and was founded in 1909. Blantyre Briefly merged with Limbe in 1956.

Limbe has a strong Asian Malawian culture and Yao culture.
