The $153 Million expansion of the RGM Airport is progressing well, The Sunday Mail reports. The project that was contracted to a Chinese Company is reportedly 22% complete and the govt is said to be impressed by the progress.
Transport Minister Joel Biggie Matiza spoke about the upgrade and said:
In August last year we started the upgrade of Robert Mugabe International Airport because it is the one that facilitates the movement of goods and persons tourists and investors among others. We were given a total 36 months to finish this project and so far we have covered the first year. To date we are on 22 percent and I can safely say that the project is running smoothly and we can surely meet the deadline.
They started by levelling the VVIP side. That side (the VVIP) will have two bridges for passengers and this means there will be no disturbances when travellers come in. After finishing the VVIP side, they will then move to the other side. A lot of work is taking place there. The car park is also being improved
The Robert Mugabe International Airport is the biggest international airport in Zimbabwe.
