22 November 2010

Maputo, Mozambique, 22 Nov – Chinese company China Henan International Cooperation group (Chico) is due in December to hand over the road between Xai-Xai and Chissibbuca, a 100-kilometre section linking the provinces of Gaza and Inhambane in Mozambique, a company source told Macauhub.

Rebuilding work on this section, which began last January, is budgeted at over 1.26 billion meticals (around US$35 million) and is jointly funded by the Mozambican central government and the World Bank.

In some parts the roads has two lanes and in others just one lane has been included, with the source telling Macauhub that the deadline included in the contract was likely to be met.

Chinese companies are involved in several sectors in Mozambique, notably construction and refurbishment of infrastructures and water supply systems of some Mozambican cities, including the capital, Maputo. (macauhub)
