Construction of Luanda/Viana highway in its final phase

16 December 2010

Luanda, Angola, 16 Dec – Construction of the Luanda-Viana highway, started in 2007, is in its final stages with the laying of an asphalt layer, drainage systems and lighting over a 6-kilometre section, Angolan news agency Angop reported.

The work covered the right side of the highway running from Viana to Catete, following similar work in the opposite direction, where traffic is already circulating.

The project to build the highway, which begins in Luanda and ends at kilometre 28 in Viana, is part of the government programme to rebuild the structural and tertiary road in the capital.

Once it is concluded travelling between the centre of the city of Luanda and the municipality of Viana will be easier and it will improve travel to the municipalities of Kilamba Kiaxi, Cacuaco and Samba, as well as the provinces of Bengo, Benguela, Malanje, Kwanza Norte and Kwanza Sul. (macauhub)
