Mozambique: Northern Development Corridor gets six more locomotives

5 August 2008

Nacala, Mozambique, 5 Aug – The Northern Development Corridor (CDN), based in Mozambique’s Nampula province, will be allocated another six railway locomotives from September, a source in the organization’s board has told macauhub.

Two of the new locomotives are currently en route to Mozambique from India and another four have already arrived in Maputo and will shortly be transported to Nacala. The new locomotives have cost the CDN some US$ 3.5 million, the same source added.

The CDN is centered on the deepwater port of Nacala and its strategic railway running to Malawi over a 77 kilometer section of track. The undertaking has become “100 percent Mozambican” after Edlows Resources and American Railroad Corporation sold their shares in the project to BCI, Mozambique’s second largest bank, and the Insitec group.
