Vice President Dr Saulos Chilima has warned against construction of sub-standard roads, saying it is costing Government huge sums of money in rehabilitation.

He observed that most roads whose lifespan have not ended , are in bad state partly due to weather but mostly due to poor work-manship.

The VP challenged Roads Authority and the Principal Secretary for Transport and Public Works, Patrick Zimpita, to review standards.
