Relevance of project

During CODA’s engagement with key stakeholders to conduct an assessment of the constituency’s needs, it emerged through submissions by the traditional leadership, elected officials GPRTU and community groups that the need for construction of a paved lorry park was urgent and pressing.

Hence, the Authority approved the project as a priority to be addressed through the one million dollars initiative.
