Home About Us Roles & Responsibilities

The functions performed by SPRDA consist mainly of the maintenance and development of the roads and bridges in the Provincial Road Network and the planning, designing and construction of new provincial roads, bridges and other road structures to enhance the existing provincial road network. 

SPRDA is responsible for the development of the provincial road network to cater for the on-going overall development programmes in the Southern Province. Since Road Transport is the primary mode of transport in the province, it is very vital that road network is adequate to develop to promote efficient transport of people and goods. The SPRDA has a responsibility to plan the future road network taking into consideration the future travel demand and formulating project proposals to meet this demand. 

On the other hand SPRDA has a responsibility to provide a road network to meet the social aspirations of the people in terms of mobility/accessibility and safety. Since the people at large depend on public transport for their travel needs it is the responsibility of the SPRDA to maintain the provincial road network to a reasonable standard so that there would be un-interrupted public transport available to them. 

Since the rehabilitation and development of the provincial road network is undertaken with public funds at a very high cost, it is responsibility of SPRDA to ensure that the adequate economic returns are achieved from the investments made on provincial road improvements. 

SPRDA has a total of 299 employees under the control of the shops and office employees act
