Reconstruction of Moçâmedes railroad in Angola due to be finished in next few days

3 August 2012

Trains travelling along the Namibe/Menongue section of the Moçâmedes railroad in Angola will make it possible to transport products from the south of the country to other areas, the governor of Namibe province, Cândida Celeste told Angolan news agency Angop.

Noting that work to rebuild the railroad would be finished in the next few days, the governor said that marble and granite quarried in the region could now be sent to its destination more reliably and at a cheaper price.

Celeste also said that reconstruction of primary, secondary and tertiary roads, as well as bridges and railroads would make it possible for public transport to reach a number of municipal areas in the province more easily.

“Within a few days the train will travel in our region once again after being at a standstill for almost 30 years and we will continue to work so that very soon a link can be made with the Namibia branch line,” said Celeste. (macauhub)
