THE Chikangaumo Bridge and Twaiteka Clinic constructed by Chambishi Copper Smelter (CCS) and Kalulushi Municipal Council have been commissioned.
The bridge across Chikangaumo stream between Kalulushi and Chati was constructed under CCS corporate social responsibility at the cost of K36 million would ease the movement of people and farming produce especially in the rainy season.
The construction of the clinic at the cost of K500 million was also facilitated by CCS while the council constructed the facility.
Kalulushi Member of Parliament (MP) Rayford Mbulu said during the commissioning that the Government appreciated complementary efforts from mining and other firms.
Mr Mbulu, who is Information, Broadcasting and Labour Deputy Minister commended CCS for contribution to the development of Kalulushi.
"I therefore urge the residents to safeguard the infrastructure because it is aimed at alleviating the sufferingof the people," Mr Mbulu said.
The infrastructure was vital to the development of both the local and national economy.
He said it was gratifying to note that school children would no longer have problems crossing the stream when going to school in the rain season.
On the clinic, Mr Mbulu said the construction of the health centre was in line with the Government on the provision of quality health care services closer to the people.
He, said there was need to upgrade the clinic to a mini hospital in future to cater for larger population.
