Malanje, Angola, 10 June – Over 1,100 kilometres of roads that give access to municipal capitals and neighbouring provinces are under reconstruction in Angola’s Malanje province, the provincial director of the Angolan National Roads Institute (INEA).

INEA, in its turn, plans to rebuild 20 kilometres of roads in Malanje, of which 15 have been carried out.

Brazilian construction company Odebrect is moving ahead with work on the road to Alto Dondo, over 69 kilometres, and levelling work has already been carried out for the project.

The bridge over Kwanza-Cangadala bridge, stretching over 308 metres, in Malanje province will be ready in December, Jorge Castro of Portuguese construction company Conduril said Wednesday cited by newspaper Jornal de Angola.

“We have around 50 percent of the bridge built, as just three arches and two pillars remain to be erected,” Castro said. (macauhub)
