Former President Hifikepunye Pohamba expressed satisfaction with the progress made in the construction and upgrading of the Windhoek-Hosea Kutako International Airport dual carriageway, a project that was initiated during his presidency before leaving office.

The project, now in its second phase, is anticipated to be completed by December 2024 but could be delayed.

Former President Pohamba emphasised the significance of adequate road infrastructure, highlighting how it serves as a basis for Namibia's socio-economic advancement, promoting inclusive growth, regional unity, and elevated living conditions for its people. 

Consequently, continuous investment in the upkeep, expansion, and improvement of road networks is vital for the country's prosperity and sustained development.

He also emphasised that the government has made significant strides in upgrading roads nationwide, facilitating smooth operations and economic activities.

Pohamba, who observed progress in upgrading to a dual carriageway from Sam Nujoma Road to the Dordabis interchange, was pleased with the work done so far.

However, the construction of the project faces challenges like water shortages and delays in auxiliary works, among other issues.
