RESIDENTS of Lusaka’s Chalala residential area have appealed to the Road Development Agency (RDA) to quickly attend to the sink hole that has developed in one of the roads in the area.
They said that the sink hole had not only affected motorists but also cuts water supply by the Lusaka Water and Sewerage Company (LWSC) to most households in the area.
A Sun reporter who visited the road found motorists making U-turns due to the same huge sink hole.
A motorist Christopher Sampa said that it was so inconveniencing and urged those responsible to repair the damage portion of the road as soon as possible.
Mr Sampa further said out many depressions had developed on the Tokyo Way, commonly known as Ring Road.
Another resident Gregory Chitalu said that even after reporting nothing had been done by concerned authorities.
He further that the Sink hole had caused water shortage as some supply pipes had been damaged
LWSC public relations officer Shamba Muzungu said that the utility company was working with the council and the RDA to ensure that the problem was rectified in the shortest possible time.
Mr Muzungu confirmed the presence of the sink hole which he feared may cause some damages to the road if not rectified, adding that children had also been seen at the spot which posed a danger to their security.
