Portuguese construction company to rebuild roads in Sao Tome and Principe

24 March 2010

Sao Tome, Sao Tome and Principe, 24 March – Portuguese construction company Monte Adriano Tuesday began reconstruction work on 52 kilometres of roads between Sao Tome and agricultural company Ribeira Peixe, in the south of the West African island of Sao Tome.

The work, estimated to cost 25 million euros, will be funded by Portuguese cooperation and will take two years. Monte Adriano will partner three small Sao Tome construction companies, Constromé, Socobrise and Major Construções in the project.

The road will be built from bitumen concrete and work will involve construction of ditche and signage along the road.

The project also includes refurbishment of seven bridges, four of which provide access to Ribeira Peixe, and three others located beyond the area where the road ends. (macauhub)
