Beira, Mozambique, 16 June – Work to expand and modernise the sewage system in the city of Beira, in northern Mozambique, is due to be concluded in the first quarter of 2012 and part of the system will be handed over to the Autonomous Services of the City of Beira, according to Mozambican newspaper Notícias.
The part of the system to be handed over by the Mozambican government to the Autonomous Services, which were set up to ensure the maintenance and sustainability of the project, includes several sewers and ditches that will increase the coverage of the sewage system and thus improve the quality of public health in the city.
The project, work on which is the responsibility of a consortium made up of Italy’s CMC di Ravenna and Portugal’s Conduril, is expected to cost 62.65 million euros, of which 52.95 million euros were funded by the European Union, and the Mozambican government provided 9.70 million euros.
Once it has been finished the system will have a new Waste Water Treatment Plant, which is at an advanced stage of its construction. (macauhub)
