The Msulira-Nkhotakota road section was one of the road sections covered under a Bank financed feasibility and detailed engineering design study for the Mchinji-Kasungu-MsuliraNkhotakota Corridor carried out starting September 1985 and finalised in August 1989. The study covered the road from Mchinji near the border with Zambia, through Kasungu and Msulira to Nkhotakota near Lake Malawi. The section was therefore identified for upgrading to bitumen standard as part of the said corridor.
The specific objective of the project was to increase transport service levels and road safety by improving road surface conditions so as to reduce vehicle operating costs. The project as appraised consisted of: (a) the improvement of the existing gravel road between Msulira and Nkhotakota to a bitumen standard road of 6.7m carriageway width with 1.5m shoulders on either side over a total distance of 75km and; (b) design review and the provision of pre-contract services and the supervision of construction.
