This was revealed by Minister of Housing and Infrastructure Development, Vincent Mwale during a briefing in Lusaka.
Mr Mwale has further called on the Road Development Agency to be on high alert and ensure that no contractor gets away with shoddy works.
Among the Roads to be redone are Lumumba, Great North, Mungwi and Ngwerere roads.
And the minister disclosed that government has reduced the cost of funding of 31 road projects across the country from K16 billion to K6.4 billion, to make a saving of about K9.5 billion.
He said the move was aimed at accelerating economic development and improving standards of living.
Mr Mwale said the 31 projects have undergone down scaling through contract re-negotiation and variation.
The minister said the projects’ restructuring involves re-scoping from upgrading to bituminous standards to construction of all-weather gravel standard roads.
He said government expected works on almost all stalled projects across the country to resume soon.
“This will still enable government’s initial objective of linking all parts of the country and enhancing mobility and accessibility. Lastly, the public is being assured of government’s sustained commitment to deliver infrastructure to all,” Mr Mwale said.
