The Concessionaire managing the Kasumbalesa border post on the Copperbelt intends to construct a modern 9-hundred capacity truck yard and a two-kilometer dual carriageway to help decongest traffic at the facility.
Yigal Berenshtein however says the measures are subject to approval from its partners, the Zambia Revenue Authority-ZRA and Government.
Mr. Berenshtein is optimistic that the development of the truck yard will tackle the challenge of increased traffic and congestion at the crossing point.
And Chililabombwe Member of Parliament Richard Musukwa says there is need to ensure goods and services in transit get to the border within a shortest time possible.
Mr. Musukwa, who is also Mines and Minerals Development Minister, says this is because the public spend not less than two hours in queues trying to reach and have access to the border.
He says the proposed dual carriageway from the border to Petroda filling station, which will be a two kilometer-stretch will help in easing the flow of traffic on the usually congested road.
