Property developer Ongos Valley will upgrade the Peter Nanyemba Road, at a cost of N$381 000.

The project is funded and administered through the Road Fund Administration of Namibia

Chairperson Reagon Graig of Ongos Valley said the upgrade has been planned about four years ago,

He highlighted some causes of the failures of some infrastructure projects

The Chief Executive Office of Road Funding Administration Ali Ipinge added that the 6.1km road upgrade would also provide road furniture as well as relocate some residents that are closer to the area. 

The Deputy Major of the City of Windhoek Magdalena Lombardt commended the Ongos Valley for initiating this project and the government for approving it. 

The Minister of Urban and Rural Development Erastus Uutoni noted that the road would bring an immense positive benefit to residents.

"The Peter Nanyemba Road upgrade will not only enhance connectivity within our region but will also provide an economic boost to our community by facilitating the movement of goods and services. This particular road is a municipal road and the Windhoek Municipal Council acknowledges the already existing traffic congestion along the road and the need for its decongestion and upgrading".

Uutoni also encourages the contractors to be on time and within budget.

Upon completion, the upgraded road will be handed over to the Windhoek Municipality and will form part of public assets and use.
