10 October 2011

Maputo, Mozambique, 10 Oct – Portuguese construction company Mota-Engil this month will start work on repairing a 230-kilometre road that links the Mozambican city of Chimoio, the district capital of Sussundenga, the administrative post of Dombe and the border town of Chipinge, which are strategic regions for agri-livestock and mining production as well as tourism.

Funding for the project, which was awarded in 2010, is of 107.9 million euros and 80 percent will be provided by the World Bank.

The project involves work on the so-called “Mossurize Corridor” along which there are a number of agricultural, forest, water, wildlife, tourism, mineral and livestock resources, notably the Chimanimani Cross-border Reserve.

Mota-Engil was involved in construction of the Tete Bridge and the Pan-African Games Village as well as repairing Regional Road 260, also in Chimoio. (macauhub)
