Moatize, in Mozambique, to have second railway station

4 January 2012

Maputo, Mozambique, 4 Jan – The government of Mozambique’s Tete province has set aside a plot of land in Moatize for the future construction of the second railway station in the district, the administrator of Moatize, Manuel Guimarães said.

Speaking to daily newspaper Notícias he said that construction of the second railway station in Moatize was part of the provincial government’s development plan and was intended to relieve traffic at the current station in Moatize.

The decision to set aside the plot of land is the result of mining activities in Tete, and the provincial government decided to reserve more room to accommodate the trains that will carry coal to the port of Beira.

Guimarães also told Notícias that land was available for industrial activities in the district. (macauhub)
