OUTAPI, 28 NOV (NAMPA) - The Deputy Minister of Works and Transport, Kilus Nguvauva has encouraged competent contractors from the Kunene Region to submit their bids for the construction of the Namibia Traffic Information System (NaTIS) Centre at Opuwo.
Speaking at the official inauguration of the new NaTIS one-stop centre at Outapi in the Omusati Region over the weekend, Nguvauva said contractors from the Kunene Region will contribute to the development of that region by participating in the construction of the centre.
“I have been informed that the construction of the Opuwo NaTIS one-stop centre in the Kunene Region will commence in March 2014,” Nguvauva told his audience.
The Roads Authority (RA) contracted Kambwa Trading cc to construct the Outapi NaTIS one-stop centre at a cost of N.dollars 19 million.
This centre, like other NaTIS centres elsewhere in the country, will offer all NaTIS services such as drivers’ licence and vehicle testing under one roof.
Ongwediva in the Oshana Region, Rundu in the Kavango Region, Lüderitz in the //Karas Region, Rehoboth in the Hardap Region and Eenhana in the Ohangwena Region are the other towns where the RA has established fully-fledged NaTIS centres in recent years.
This followed the 2002 Cabinet approval for the countrywide establishment of the NaTIS centres.
The construction of the Outapi NaTIS Centre created some 300 temporary jobs for unemployed people living in the area.
