29 April 2009

Uíge, Angola, 29 April – Reconstruction of a 160-kilometre stretch of road between Damba and Negage in the Angolan province of Uíge, begun in February, this week went into the final stages of levelling work and construction of drainage ditches, in order to later be asphalted, Angolan news agency Angop reported.

As part of the National Programme for Recuperation of Road Infrastructures, the project is an initiative of the National Roads Institute of Angola (INEA) and is being carried out by Brazilian construction company Camargo Corrêa, and includes levelling, creating drainage channels, placing signage and asphalting.

The road will have two lanes in each direction, each of which 3 metres wide.

The municipal administrator of Damba, Sebastião Muanza, said that reconstruction of this section of road would reduce the coast of travelling and improve the lives of the population. (macauhub)
